May I, through the Your Letters pages of the Worthing Herald, pass on my very sincere thanks to the electors of Castle ward for their support through the ballot box at the by-election on August 7?
By electing a UKIP councillor, the electorate of Castle ward has shown a growing discontent with the mainstream parties.
The mainstream parties have shown contempt for the wishes and desires of the electorate, to deal with the ever-increasing interference by the EU in the governance of the United Kingdom.
My first and foremost priority will be to represent the people of Castle ward to the best of my ability, while also supporting national UKIP policies, including a vote for withdrawal from the EU through a national referendum.
Councillor Charles James
