Here are just a few of the essential campaign resources your donation is helping to pay for:
- Printing of leaflets, posters and other campaign material.
- Safe postal distribution services if restrictions mean activists cannot deliver campaign materials by hand.
- Delivering targeted letters by post to voters in Dumfriesshire.
- Distributing postal vote applications to supporters to ensure their vote is counted.
- Surveying voters if we are unable to canvass ahead of the election.
- Social media and online advertising.
All of this (and more) will be crucial to us in winning Dumfriesshire - so thank you for your support.
Please help re-elect Joan to the Scottish Parliament by donating generously to her crowd funder. Joan is standing as the SNP candidate in Dumfriesshire - she is determined to win the seat from the Tories. The Conservatives have deep pockets and will throw everything at the seat, so Joan needs more money to beat them. Lockdown means we cannot hold normal fundraisers - but need more cash to campaign, for example by post.
This election is historic. The Tories treat Scotland with contempt and have imposed a Brexit on us we didn’t vote for. By winning Dumfriesshire we will tell them all of Scotland has had enough.
Joan was a campaigning journalist before being elected in 2011 and always argued Scotland’s future should be in Scotland’s hands. She has brought the same energy and conviction to her work in parliament. She has fought hard to support her constituents in the pandemic, especially those who are most vulnerable. She has campaigned against the eviction of tenant farmers by big landowners, stood up against would be frackers, opposed rural bank and Post Office closures and backed the successful drive for South Scotland to get its own economic development agency. Her support for free speech and women’s rights has made an international impact. If you want a powerful, experienced and principled voice in Scotland’s parliament, help Joan McAlpine’s re-election and donate to her crowd funder.
