Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year

I want to take this opportunity to wish all my constituents well for Christmas and the New Year.

Now that MP’s have also been sworn in it is a good time to thank the voters across Harrogate, Knaresborough, Boroughbridge and surrounding villages which make up the Harrogate & Knaresborough constituency.  It was an honour last week to be elected for a fourth time to represent and serve the area where I live.  Thank you to those 29,962 voters who voted for me, I will represent everyone, no matter how they voted or whether they voted at all.

There are many priorities ahead for the Government and for me locally here in Harrogate & Knaresborough.    This week’s Harrogate Advertiser and Knaresborough Post featured a look at some of those local and national priorities and you can read more here.

Thank you again to the voters of the Harrogate & Knaresborough constituency for giving me the honour of our area again.

Andrew Jones, Member of Parliament for Harrogate & Knaresborough

So it was quite something[…]
