On May the 5th, Scotland elects a new Parliament. I’m standing for election as Pirate Party candidate in the Lothian region. We have a really good chance here, with 4 universities in Edinburgh and the highest level of internet connectivity in Scotland.
I’m writing to invite you to join the Lothian campaign team, and to attend one of our inaugural meetings. Whether you’re an experienced political campaigner or a newbie, whether you have lots of time to spare or only a little, I value your input.
The inaugural meetings will be held soon, in Edinburgh. They will be in the evening, on one or more of the days Thursday 10th February to Tuesday 15th February inclusive. So if you want to come to any of these meetings, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and state which days you prefer. When I receive replies giving people’s preferences for days I will be able to decide which dates the meetings will be on, and contact people accordingly.
I’d like to emphasize that you don’t have to attend these meetings to help with the campaign; in fact you don’t have to live in the Lothian region (or Scotland for that matter)! Helping can be something simple, such as reading drafts of leaflets and suggesting improvements. If you want to be involved in any way, please email me at email@example.com.
