On behalf of the United Kingdom Independence Party, we would like to express our sincere thanks to those of you who have put their trust in us by voting for our candidates on May 2.
Our recent success is not the end. It is the new beginning of our challenge to return our country back to Home Rule. This victory for UKIP, both here and throughout the country, will spur us on to an even greater desire to achieve our aims and aspirations.
Across the whole constituency area, UKIP took more votes than any other party. We acknowledge this level of support has given us a clear mandate to represent our voters.
We would like to assure them that we shall take forward the views set out in our UKIP manifesto, but foremost we will serve the local community with integrity and vigor.
On behalf of the local UKIP branch, sincere thanks from Lionel Parsons, county councillor for Sompting and North Lancing.
