David Linden is an East End lad who was brought up in Cranhill and Garrowhill. He has been an SNP activist for 16 years and is married to a Primary Teacher, Roslyn. They have a young son, Isaac.
Following the announcement by Theresa May of a snap general election, local SNP members are gearing up to help David fight this election. Our local campaign will be funded entirely by branch funds, but we also need your help to win and to finance the best campaign possible.
What do we need money for?
These are some of the major campaign expenses we need to fund:
- Running a campaign hub – We’ve got a great campaign office at 419 Gallowgate, from which we’re running our operation, but we need to pay for rent, internet and energy amongst other costs. Help us keep that campaign hub running right through until 8th June!
- Campaign literature - In the next few weeks we'll leaflet the entire constituency a number of times with campaign literature. It's really important to get accurate information out to voters and to make it easy for them to get in touch with David and their local SNP team.
- Letters to voters - While the purpose of leafleting is to ensure a blanket delivery of information across the constituency, writing letters to voters is all about targeted communication and following up on contacts we have made before. Our campaigners have already contacted many thousands of electors in Glasgow East and will contact many more in the run-up to polling day. It's very important to stay in touch with those voters, so we follow up the initial contact with personally addressed letters.
- Posters & other material - We want to give window posters, car stickers, and badges to any supporter that would like to show their support. A good display of window posters and a high profile ensures everyone knows there is an election on and encourages SNP supporters to get out and vote.
So these are the kinds of things we are asking you to help fund. Fighting a really good local campaign requires money and we want to fight the best campaign possible to send David to Westminster as the next MP for Glasgow East.
