A letter to Cllr Andrew Schrader from the Prime Minister, the Rt Hon David Cameron MP:
I am writing to congratulate you on your recent success in the Basildon Council by-election. I was delighted by your success and that you will be representing Billericay East ward for us. This is a great personal achievement on your part and a tribute to your hard work and strong campaign.
While the Government has certainly had a challenging few months – as all governments in mid-term do – we must remain entirely focussed on the big, long-term issues confronting our country: turning the economy around, fixing welfare, helping with the cost of living, controlling immigration, and ensuring that everything we do puts our country on the side of hard-working people who want to get on in life.
We all have a responsibility to ensure that through the tough decisions we make, we demonstrate how we are on the side of people who work hard and who do the right thing for themselves and their families. That is who we are fighting for.
The months ahead will undoubtedly present many challenges and will involve a great deal of hard work. But I know that you will be a strong voice for your constituents and I wish you all the very best in representing Billericay East ward on Basildon Council.
Well done & good luck –
