Thanks to your votes, I topped the RIBA poll
Now I know I may have been something of a disappointment to the AJ in the past but I don't want to be of further disappointment to all those people who voted for me in the RIBA council election.
So I would like to thank the 1,102 people who voted first choice for me if only to put the record straight. And in case they wondered what happened to their vote after reading your report ('Ferguson quartet in election success' AJ 22.5.03), not only did you get me elected, your vote helped me to top the poll. Thanks.
