Steven has been the MP for Stirling since 2015, raising issues affecting people across the Stirling constituency and fighting for their interests.
Steven is local to Cambusbarron, where he still lives.
Following the announcement by Theresa May of a snap general election local SNP members are gearing up to help Steven fight this election. Our local campaign will be partly funded by City of Stirling SNP, 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:
Campaign literature. In the next few weeks we'll leaflet the entire constituency a number of times with leaflets. It's really important to get accurate information out to voters and to make it easy for them to get in touch with us.
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. Our campaigners have already contacted many thousands of electors in the Stirling constituency and will contact many more more in the run-up to June 8th. 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, 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.
A campaign hub. We need somewhere not only to store all our campaign materials but to have campaign meetings and act as a point of contact for all our activists. On Election Day this will be the nerve centre for GOTV as well as somewhere for our activists to grab a quick refreshment.
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 we can.
It's really important that we take nothing for granted. Opinion polls may show us in a strong position locally but we are going to campaign for every single vote in this constituency, just as we have always done.
