I WOULD like to thank the residents of Cullercoats for re-electing me as their ward councillor, plus many friends that helped my campaign.
It continues to be a huge honour and privilege to represent local people, whether or not you voted for me, I am here to help.
My fellow ward councillors George Westwater, Ken Barrie and I hold regular ward surgeries on a monthly basis.
Cullercoats is a wonderful place to live and I will do my very best to stand up and fight for local people.
COUN SHIRLEY MORTIMER
