Matt Rodda for Reading East

Standing up for Reading



I wanted to thank everyone who voted for me in the recent elections - and also to thank all of those who took part even if they voted for other parties.

I’m keen to continue to work for our whole community, including those who voted for other parties and please do contact me if you would like help with any issues either on or by calling 0118 9462320.

The results in Reading were not as people had expected, with a late surge of voters switching to the Conservatives to re-elect the current Conservative MPs in both Reading constituencies, this was despite the polls having predicted a much closer result.

However, Labour’s vote still went up significantly and we came a strong second to the Conservatives in the General Election.

In addition, Labour didn’t lose a single councillor in Reading and even gained one council seat in Earley.

We are very grateful for residents’ continued support and we will work hard for everyone in our community.
