Election night was terrifying and exciting as we watched the Count as ballot papers were tipped onto the table, I felt nervous and hoped I had done enough pavement pounding, and I clutched Handsome Husbands hand as they began to sift through the little bits of paper. He was confident and kept telling me it was a no brainer as I was gorgeous, intelligent and far better looking than the opposition. As the night went on, and the results began to role in, it was clear there was a great big blue swing and I began to feel a little more hopeful and at 5am on May 6th this year it was announced to the world, that I had won my seat. I cannot begin to explain the sheer joy and feeling of triumph I felt, it is a moment I shall never forget.
So I won, and I have been getting my feet under the table, making my mark, and taking my role extremely seriously as there is much work to be done, people to help, places to go, and meetings to attend, and time is very short. Life will be a little more serious for me, and I think it is what I have been searching for for some time. I'm good at this, I have come in with fresh eyes and a commercial view and I do believe things can be done if you put your mind to it.
