Things are moving, it’s now only a few months until the General Election and campaigning for most is in full swing, and for the first time ever, I will be joining in.
As I’ve written before I’m a supporter of Yorkshire First, and this is the first General Election we’ll fight. To fight a general election you need people to stand before the electorate, and joining our first candidate Paul Salveson who is standing in Colne Valley, we also have candidates in Leeds, Shipley and now Calder Valley. Rod Sutcliffe is a retired GP who lives in Cragg Vale (read more here), and I’ll be doing my best to support his campaign.
I’ve never been involved in canvassing for an election, so this year is all new to me. I suppose the aim for me isn’t to ram my views down anyone’s throats, I just want to let people know who we are and what we stand for. It will be good to hear the views of people and gauge what interest there is in the election. We’ll be in Brighouse this Saturday (7/2/15) spreading the message, and probably freezing our bits off, so if you want to learn a bit more, or just have a chat then come down and see us!
