David Elvidge: I’m Amazed By Public’s Support

New East Riding of Yorkshire Councillor admitted he was overwhelmed by the level of support that swept him into office in the Minster and Woodmansey Ward.

David, 48, took the decision to stand in the county council elections after spending four years on the – one as Mayor.

A born-and-bred Beverlonian, David cut a nervous figure at as the votes were counted and the time for the announcement neared.

But he had no need to worry. He pulled in more than 2,000 votes – the most of the three elected councillors in the ward – and believes he, and can make a big difference to the area.

His election campaign was struck by tragedy only last week as his father-in-law passed away suddenly. But wife Janet continued to support him despite her loss and David was quick to pay tribute to his “rock”.

He told .net: “I must thank Janet for her support and belief in me.

“I am just amazed by the public’s support and thank them all. I feel we have a great team and I know we can do great things together.”

And, borrowing and lengthening .net’s slogan, he added: “Now it’s all about Beverley and Woodmansey!”
