I WOULD like to take this opportunity to thank the voters in the Pontefract North ward who elected me as their councillor following the recent local elections.
I’ve spoken to over 4,000 people in the run up to the election and I am looking forward to working on behalf of everyone in the ward, fighting hard for the local area.
I will be holding regular advice surgeries and will be working closely with the other Labour councillors in the ward, Pat Garbutt and Clive Tennant.
There are undoubtedly going to be some challenging times ahead but I will ensure that Pontefract North has an active voice on Wakefield Council.
I look forward to speaking and meeting many more people in the forthcoming weeks and months.
COUN PAULA SHERRIFF
Pontefract North ward
