It's nice to be appreciated

What a pleasant surprise to get this thank you from a resident. I often get thanks from people I help on a particular issue. This one came out of the blue from someone that I don't know. It made my day.

Hi Jennie

I'm a Canterbury Terrace, Black Forest resident and have lived here since my early 20s, in the early 1990s. I have followed your involvement in local government and voted in support of you (and, until he was unsuccessful in his bid for mayor's role, Les Birch) for many years. I thought it was about time I let you know that I am very pleased with the representation you are providing for me in council. I have just read your most recent newsletter for Goodwood South, and it is a refreshingly straightforward account of what's happening. No spin, no glossy pictures - just some facts about stuff that interests me such as the progress of various works around the area. It may sound petty of me to say it, but it is a great relief to read something that is not full of euphemisms and weasel-words. The words and actions described within the document are what are is important.

I know that local government work can be very unrewarding at times and it would appear that you've had a bit of a tough time over the past 6 months. However, I am happy you're doing that work and I applaud it.

Thank you for your efforts and the benefits they've brought to my household while I've lived in this terrific area.

Kind regards
