    From all on Jenny Randerson’s campaign team –
    Congratulations to Kirsty and her team. We look forward to working with you.

    Secondly, a massive thank you to all those who supported Jenny and a huge thank you for all those who gave her a warm welcome around Wales.

    Here’s to a brighter, greener, more Liberal Wales.

    From two excellent candidates Kirsty emerges the choice to lead us in the coming months and years. There is an abundance of talent in the party in Wales – councillors, activists, PPC s and those waiting for approval !! Let’s get a full list in the constituencies working with AMs, M.Ps (even peers !). We have a year ? months ? until the General Election. With a radical programme touching minds AND hearts we can ensure that Kirsty is THE leader to bring out the deep rooted Liberalism of Wales. A million thanks to Mike and also to Jenny. You’ve given so much (more yet to come !) The future can be Liberal-Democrat. Kirsty, we not only congratulate you, but pledge ourselves to work with you in every way possible. We have a dream for wales…..

    Hooray! At last we have a woman with young children in a senior LibDem role showing us that politics and family life can successfully be balanced! Well done and good luck!
