With 60 days to go before polling day – May 7 – we need to even more strongly focus our efforts on the campaign in our three seats in Nottinghamshire (Ashfield, Broxtowe, Sherwood). There’s a great deal of work to be undertaken, including the tortuous administration surrounding successful nominations as candidates, which we can’t afford to get wrong.
Among the time-consuming activities which are already underway is the door-to-door distribution of 40,000 A3 leaflets across the three seats.
We’ll shortly be launching a crowdfunder to raise the funds required over the coming 60 days. We require almost £6,000 to pay for the 140,000 A3 leaflets which will be distributed by the Royal Mail (at no cost to J4MB) to every household across the three constituencies, in which 230,000 registered electors live. One side of the leaflet is an A3 size window poster. The design for the 140,000 leaflets will have to be modified very slightly to comply with Royal Mail guidelines, but you’d be hard pushed to tell the differences from the current leaflets.
If you can afford to donate anything now, we would be very grateful – here. Thank you.
With the pressing need to focus single-mindedly on the campaign, some things will inevitably have to go on the back burner. Starting tomorrow, we’ll be publishing fewer blog posts, and I’m sorry to say we’ll have to cut back on responding to emails from supporters, and publishing links to materials they suggest. There simply won’t be enough hours in the day to deal with these worthwhile but time-consuming activities, and I hope supporters will understand our reasoning, and not be offended by the lack of responses.
Onwards and upwards!
