21st July 2011:
This was Jamie's message following deselection:

"I would like to take this opportunity to state what a pleasure it has been to work with you"

Cllr Jamie Chowdhary has been deselected by Reading East Conservative Association (RECA) and can no longer serve Peppard Ward after next May's local elections.

"To the Residents of Peppard Ward from Jamie Chowdhary

Dear Residents,

Since my election in 2008, I have been proud to represent the people of Peppard Ward and I thank all of you that have supported me.  I am pleased to report that I have not received a single complaint and hope therefore, that you have been happy with the work that I have undertaken on your behalves.

While I have had a few health issues over the last year, I have kept up with my Ward and Council work and I had hoped to seek re-election in 2012.  Reading East Conservative Association has sought an alternative candidate in my place however, so this is not to be.

I would like to take this opportunity to state what a pleasure it has been to work with you. 

I would also like to thank all my colleagues, residents and friends who have supported me as well as my ward colleague, Cllr Mark Ralph, for his early guidance and support.  I am confident that he will continue to work untiringly in the best interests of Peppard Ward.

Currently on Reading Borough Council, I am an elected member of the Thames Valley Police Authority.

In the meantime, if you have any concerns regarding any Council services, I shall continue as a Peppard Ward Councillor until elections in 2012 and will be happy to help".

Best wishes and regards

Cllr Jamie Chowdhary
