St Austell & Newquay Campaign Fund
Dick Cole is the leader of Mebyon Kernow - the Party for Cornwall and he is respected councillor who has represented his local community for over twenty years.
Dick is standing in the General Election, because he believes it is important that voters have the opportunity to cast a positive vote for Cornwall and to support an alternative to political parties based in London.
Mebyon Kernow is a progressive political party, which is campaigning for a better deal for Cornwall and the devolution of meaningful political powers to a National Assembly of Cornwall.
MK is not funded by big business or a number of wealthy individuals. We are dependent on the support and generosity of ordinary people in order to ensure that as many voters as possible hear about MK’s aspirations for Cornwall.
It is our hope you will wish to back MK’s campaign by supporting this Crowdfunder appeal. Funds raised will pay for election leaflets, poster and advertising.
What people say about Dick
“Dick has built a reputation in Cornish politics – even amongst his opponents – for being a tireless campaigner for local issues and the champion of the powerless.” Western Morning News
“Dick Cole – proud Cornishman, vocal politician and all round nice guy. This is probably the description that you would get from most who have encountered the leader of Mebyon Kernow. Dick is one of the most recognisable names and faces in Cornish politics and is well known for the passionate speeches he has given in the council chamber at Lys Kernow over the years. When Dick stands up to speak he commands the respect of all in the chamber, no matter what their political persuasion and he is also listened to. On most occasions he is also a rare voice of reason in amongst the often party political posturing which sometimes occurs.” Cornish Guardian
