Conservative candidate Sarah Dines has been declared as the new Member of Parliament for Derbyshire Dales.
This result will be seen as a major victory and a vindication for leave voters in Derbyshire Dales. But it will also provide relief for voters who are concerned about the NHS, Policing and education – all topics Sarah has campaigned on this election.
A triumphant Mrs Dines said: “A big thank you to those who put their faith in me at the polls and what a fantastic result for those that want to see Brexit done. Now we will clearly have a functioning Conservative majority government, we can move forward as a united country and unleash its full potential.’
She also added: It is an honour to follow Sir Patrick McLoughlin in serving Derbyshire Dales, but this is not only my victory, but that of the people who have made it clear they want to see the Brexit deadlock resolved and deliver the change they voted for in 2016. It means we can move on to other important issues – a record cash boost for our fantastic NHS, 20,000 more police officers, levelling up funding in our schools and keeping our economy strong to fund the public services on which we all rely.”
