Campaign electSloan Weekly Update
April 3 2019
Last Week around H-L&A
We had a busy week knocking on doors! We were in Napanee last weekend (hopefully the last time we’ll need boots and toques, although it’s been great to showcase some of our campaign gear!). We also canvassed in Stirling on Monday, and the Cannifton/Corbyville areas twice mid-week. We had a great reception at the doors—many people in our riding are excited about our positive, Conservative vision and our determination to develop policy in response to their needs.
I also met with John Graham of the Church-Key Brewing Company in Campbellford, which produces wonderful craft beer that is available in many places in H-L&A—It's always great to connect with a local businesses and entrepreneurs and hear their concerns.
Plans are moving forward for our event with MP Michelle Rempel! Join us on Friday, May 3 from 6pm - 9pm at the Royal Canadian Legion in Napanee, 26 Mill St East.
Ms. Rempel is the Conservative MP for Calgary Nose Hill and the Shadow Minister for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship. She has been extremely dynamic and effective in Question Period: one of the issues on which she has been most active is border security, and the need to preserve a Canadian system of immigration that is orderly, fair and compassionate. During her visit, Ms Rempel plans to meet with several community groups that work with refugees.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door and can be purchased at www.electsloan.ca/events. (This event is being run on a cost-recovery basis.) Please bring a friend!
We will be canvassing in Bath this Sunday afternoon (April 7) from 2:00 to 5:00. Would you join us to knock on doors? (Note: forecasted highs of 11 and 14 degreesJ!) We will meet in the Bath Public School parking lot, 247 Church St. Remember, no experience is necessary; we will give you training on our simple canvassing strategy, and you will be paired up with an experienced campaigner. All are welcome! Email us at info@electSloan.ca if you can join us.
Join the Victory Club!
To reach our goal of being election-ready, we are launching Victory Club, a program that will go a long way towards reaching our fundraising target and will give us the necessary tools to run a successful campaign. Our target can be reached if only 250 people donate $400. A $400 donation costs you only $100 out-of-pocket after the generous tax credit! And remember, every eligible member of your household can donate separately and join our Victory Club. We recently had a husband and wife donate $400 each--$800 for the campaign and only $200 out-of-pocket for them! See below for donation info.
As always, we are grateful for your support for this Campaign and we will keep working together to spread our positive Conservative vision for Canada and for Hastings—Lennox & Addington. Donations of any amount are always welcome: When you give to our local Conservative association (up to the 2019 max. of $1600), that money stays right here in HLA, and up to 75% of your donation could be eligible for a tax credit on your 2019 tax return. We can accept donations from Canadian individuals only (not from corporations or businesses). Cheques should be made payable to H-L&A Conservative Association and sent to PO Box 111, Madoc, Ontario, K0K 2K0. We cannot accept cash or credit card information through the mail; however, you can donate online at: www.electsloan.ca/donate.
