Mike Weatherley MP has just announced that he is resigning. He will not be a candidate in the forthcoming general election.
Residents of Hove and Portslade, me included, will want to say thanks for his public service, wish him well for his return to the private sector, and look to the future for our community.
The general election will now mean a fresh start for Hove and Portslade. My continuing commitment to our community is to focus on how we can create a better economic climate for small businesses, more opportunities for young people, and a fairer deal for people affected by our housing crisis.
