It’s expected that the postal vote ballots for the Hampshire County Council election will start to fall on people’s doormats on Saturday morning.

This is an encouraging e-mail (received today) from a lady in Marchwood that I have never had the pleasure of meeting or speaking to. Makes me think I am in with a chance…

“Hi David,

I just wanted to say that I have lived in Marchwood for 6 years, but Southampton for most of my life. I have never felt as though I have ‘known’ a councillor as well as I know you.

I have never known a councillor to be so visible and in touch with the community. To the extent that I was having a cuppa with my mum in Marchwood Terrace and you walked up the garden path delivering a newsletter (and I recognised you!). I am terribly impressed.

I’ve always been a labour ‘supporter’ but will be voting for you in May. Good luck!”
