Last quote by Lesley Rickerby

I would have preferred a majority, but that's how our democratic system works. But after several recounts, we hardly had a choice. It is incredible to see that we organise a democratic election but we in the end we find ourselves drawing straws! The returning officer decides if we would flip a coin or draw straws and he went with straws. I certainly don't want to do that again in a hurry – it really was the last straw.feedback

Lesley Rickerby said, β€œIt's unbelievable that when you consider we have a democratic service that we end up having to draw straws. It was very traumatic and I certainly would have preferred it to be a majority, but the way our system works, after a couple of recounts, we had no choice. When you enjoy doing something like representing people I would have been very disappointed to lose it that way. I certainly don't want to do that again in a hurry; it really was the last straw.”.
