I am humbled that Ward 6 voters put their trust in me and sent me to City Hall today.
I would like to thank Scott Britton for a great race, he worked very hard and that is why the results are extremely close. Nevertheless, today was a referendum on the Tax Cap, and protecting it continues to be the will of the voters.
I look forward to working for the ordinary people of Ward 6 and to making Manchester a better place to live and one we can all continue being proud of.
