Thank you so much to every single person who took the trouble to vote yesterday.
I'm obviously delighted that a Labour Councillor has now been returned to represent the Forth Ward once more.
And I give an absolute assurance that I will do my utmost to represent the needs of this area to the very best of my ability. I will do everything I can to repay the trust that local voters have placed in me, and in Edinburgh Labour.
Can I also say thank you to all the other candidates who stood in this election, for a hard-fought but even-tempered local campaign.
A short rest now, and then the really hard-work starts!
