Ok, ok, I know I said a while back that I’d have to stop celebrating winning my election, but taking Elijah Mariam and Zoe Williams (both pictured above), who work in the Westminster office of my local Member of Parliament, out to lunch on Tuesday, wasn’t strictly celebrating…
Throughout my campaign, Elijah and Zoe were total rocks. They helped me – and continue to help me – with my ward casework and arranged many, many appointments for Leyton ward residents with Harry. They sent me information I could use in my campaign and always let me know about parliamentary initiatives I could get involved with.
After two fantastic years, Zoe is leaving Harry’s office to become the full time Campaigns Officer for Democratic Left Pressure Group Compass (www.compassonline.org.uk), upon whose board I sit.
I will be sad to lose Zoe from the constituency but Leyton and Wanstead’s loss is the country’s gain!
Watch out for Zoe and for Compass, she is going to be one mean National Campaigns officer!
Thanks again to you both.
In my eyes, you are the best MP’s staff in the whole wide world! xxx
