Jo congratulates Mayor on re-election win

Jo has congratulated Boris Johnson and Bexley and Bromley Assembly Member James Cleverly on their re-election wins in Thursday's mayoral contest.  Jo said: "I am of course delighted by Boris' well-deserved win.  As the Mayor said on Friday night, this has been a 'long and gruelling campaign', and I am grateful to everyone in Orpington who chose to put their trust in the Mayor for another term.

"I especially want to thank the local volunteers who gave up so much of their time to go door to door in dreadful weather and get out the message of his achievements so far and pledges for the future.  I know that no one will fight for areas like Orpington more than Boris, and I look forward to four more years of falling crime rates, lower council tax, greater transport investment and less waste at City Hall."
