Week 1 – campaign update – Jon Tandy
As you will be aware, the General Election has been called for May 6th. This is now the time we need to get behind our hard working candidate, Jon Tandy.
We need your help:
• Can you please put up your Jon Tandy Labour poster?
• Volunteer for a large garden poster – we’ll put it on a wooden stake and can drop this by your home?
• Or, deliver our leaflets in your neighbourhood?
Please phone on 01743369934, email firstname.lastname@example.org or drop into the office at Morris Hall if you can help with any of these campaign activities.
Week 1 update
Having grown up in Shrewsbury and selected as the Labour candidate in 2008 I’ve been fighting on local issues in my home constituency for years now.
However, as many of you will know, we’ve gone up a few gears since the Prime Minister announced the election on Tuesday. So, this week I’ve knocked doors and spoken to people from Sundorne in the south of the constituency, Meole Brace in the middle, and from Copthorne to the north of Shrewsbury
When I was selected I remember thinking it was really important to me to stand in a community I care about, and then hopefully going on to represent them and fight for our local issues in Parliament. This week, those thoughts came racing back.
The response from voters all over the borough has been great. We got warmly welcomed, wherever we went. We were off to a flying start this week:
• Our campaigns office in the Morris Hall has had a make-over and looks great.
• I wrote to our members asking them to put up posters and it’s good to see them already going up
•We’ve been doing all the bread and butter campaigning, getting out and talking to people and doing high visibility events. We met lots of voters at the Sundorne School and at Six form Collage and received lots of ‘good lucks’
Voters in Shrewsbury are thinking hard about this election, and know it’s a real choice between us and the Tories. Whilst people may not always be 100% behind everything the Government has done, when it comes down to it, time and time again they say that they’d definitely prefer a Labour Government over a Conservative one.
Remember there are a few things you can do:
1 – Invite other friends to join the group.
2 – Make sure you are registered to vote, preferably by post. If you need more info about this, drop us a message back.
3 – If you have any spare time between now and May 6th, there will be something you can do to help the campaign. Again drop us a message back.
