18 September 2014 - 57% of the people in our constituency voted YES to Independence.
8 May 2015 - 39.3% record breaking swing to the SNP & Anne McLaughlin is elected to Westminster as the first ever SNP MP for Glasgow North East. The seat they said we could never win.
2016-2017 - Since then we've had Ivan McKee elected to the Scottish Parliament and we've taken control of Glasgow City Council and elected several new SNP councillors in Glasgow Provan constituency - Christina Cannon, Graham Campbell, Allan Casey, Annette Christie, Russell Robertson, Mandy Morgan and Ruairi Kelly.
8 June 2017 - Anne got 40.2% of the vote, Labour got 40.9% and took Glasgow North East from the SNP in a devastating night for Provan SNP and all our exceptional activists. 242 was the majority.
We are determined to win it back because one of the most deprived constituencies in Scotland DESERVES the level of support *Anne McLaughlin and her team gave it. Anne has been inundated with hundreds of messages from distraught constituents and community activists who can't believe she has not been re-elected. There have been so many offers of help that we KNOW we can do this.
What we don't have, is money. There could be an election in 4 months and we have spent our last pennies on the one in June. This is a poor constituency and we will do our best to fundraise from the members but there is not a lot of money here. So we need your help.
Please give whatever you can to ensure we elect someone who will actually fight tooth and nail for:
LET THERE BE NO FORGOTTEN COMMUNITIES!
from the very grateful members of Glasgow Provan SNP
*The party will open up its selection process and when it does, if more than one candidate puts themselves forward, we will change the wording of this so that we do not prejudice the outcome. Whoever the candidate is, we have to win this seat back.
NB if there is no early general election, we will do a poll of donors to find an alternative but related use for the money.
