Letter in Full from Chris Vince..
Dear Members, Supporters and Voters
I want to start with a thank you, a most sincere thank you from the bottom of my heart, to all of you that helped out during my campaign. Each individual leaflet delivered, phone call made and every single door knocked on contributed to what I think was a decent effort in Chelmsford so whatever you did it certainly helped.
We know that Thursday was a bad night for the Labour Party nationally and more importantly it was a bad night for the country. 5 more years of the Tories in Government could mean the end of our NHS and unprecedented cuts to other public services which is why even in opposition we must keep battling, we must keep fighting.
However, there is a silver lining to that cloud. Here in Chelmsford Labour vote increased by 59%. We increased our share of the votes by 6.7%, more than anywhere else in Essex. Labour have shown that we are the only alternative to the Tories in Chelmsford and we must keep fighting and to build on these gains. People might tell you that Labour can't win in Chelmsford but I have seen through the passion of many of you throughout this campaign that we can win because we have that passion and we have a strength and resolve. We must keep fighting.
Thank you for selecting me as your candidate and once again for all your support.
It was an honour and a privilege to represent you Chelmsford Labour Party.
Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Chelmsford 2015
