"It is testament to the hard work of my Liberal Democrat colleagues on Tring Town Council, Dacorum Borough Council and my predecessor, Nick Hollinghurst, who have demonstrated the importance to local residents of strong local representation and of having their voices heard in local government decision-making.

"I welcome the opportunity to work with everyone in the community to ensure we have the right infrastructure and resources locally to build a greener, fairer and healthier future.

"A future that recognises both the effects of the pandemic and the need to address climate change in our ways of living and how we grow our communities."

Voters in Dacorum also voted on who they wanted to take up the role of Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire – the contest was due to take place last year, but was delayed due to the pandemic.
