I recently stood as a candidate in the local elections for the United Kingdom Independent Party (UKIP).
I would like to take this opportunity, through your letters page to say a big thank you to every one in the Penistone East area who voted for me. It was the first time a UKIP candidate had stood in this ward and to take 18.9% of the vote was encouraging.
I will continue to work passionately for my party as I believe they really care for the welfare of this country and its people. Through your votes you proved that you care also. So once again thank you, your support is really appreciated.
