I don’t have the full result yet, but I have been informed that, along with Janet Nunn and Nigel Quinton, I’ve been elected as one of the members of the East of England Liberal Democrat Regional Policy Committee. Thank you to everyone who voted for me – I look forward to having the chance to get on with the things I wrote about here.
There are other places on the committee still to be filled, and there are three places available for Liberal Democrat councillors in the region, as well as two from the region’s parliamentarians and two from the regional executive. If you are a councillor and interested in one of those positions, then you should have received details from the regional secretary about how to put yourself forward as a candidate.
I’ll hopefully be providing some updates and feedback here during my time on the RPC, and I’m always open to hear your thoughts and comments.
If you’re a conference representative for the Liberal Democrats in the East of England, you should have received (or be about to receive) the voting pack for members of regional committees. I’m a candidate for Regional Policy Committee, and as we only have a limited space in the manifesto booklet to talk about what we want to achieve on the committee, I wanted to expand on my ideas.

Anyone else going to the East of England Lib Dem Regional Conference tomorrow? There’s not really time for a full bloggers/tweeters meet-up, but if anyone fancies meeting up at the lunch break for a quick ‘so that’s what you look like in the flesh!’ moment, let me know or just come and say hello.
Oh, and don’t forget to bring some cash with you so you can come to the Colchester local party stall and buy some of chocolate – there’s still some left, if you didn’t get the chance to buy any at Federal Conference!
