True to his word, WAEC Returning Officer David Payne officially declared the By-Election result today - at the end of Cottesloe Groyne.
Having placed 4th, I congratulated Dr David Honey on his win and all the candidates for running, and expressed my thanks to all who voted for me, for seeing value in someone willing to stand up for what they believe in and seeking to represent their local area. I look fwd to continuing to do so as Cottesloe Councillor.
Thank you to everyone who voted yesterday in the 2018 Cottesloe By-election.
Congratulations to Dr David Honey on what looks to be a resounding show of support for Liberal values and confidence in David himself.
I feel very privileged to have been able to participate in our democratic process, to enjoy the freedom we have to do so in this country, and experience such a positive reaction from voters and others I've spoken to over the last few weeks. I'll keep doing my bit for Cottesloe!
