Campaign electSloan Weekly Update
March 26 2019
Last Week around H-L&A
Last weekend I knocked on doors with this terrific team in Deseronto—a community with such an interesting history, and very friendly people! It was a real pleasure to talk all kinds of folks in this great community, including Mariano, an enthusiastic supporter; thank you for sharing your story.

We had a great time at Napanee’s “Spring into the Campaign” event, organized by Marg Werry (thanks, Marg!). There was an excellent turnout and a lot of interest, support and enthusiasm. Thank you to all who came out for the event, to the Waterfront Pub for having us, and to 88.7 MyFM in Napanee for covering our event and for participating in the Q & A! I was pleased to be able to share what my priorities are for H-L&A if I’m elected this October.

Big news! We are thrilled to announce that Conservative MP Michelle Rempel will visit our riding on May 3. Ms. Rempel is the Shadow Minister for Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship, and has been extremely dynamic and effective in Question Period on a number of issues. I think we can safely say that the Liberals’ finally starting to address the situation at our borders is largely due to her relentless work and her fiery speeches. Ms. Rempel is passionate, courageous and a formidable asset to our Party. More details forthcoming, but we plan to hold a public event with Ms. Rempel at the Napanee Legion, Friday, May 3 in the evening—mark your calendars! Tickets are $15 in advance (available on our website here: https://www.electsloan.ca/an_evening_with_michelle_rempel ) and $20 at the door. This event is being run on a cost-recovery basis.
We will be canvassing in Napanee this weekend! We’ve been getting a great response from folks in this community, and we want to build on that—would you join us to knock on doors? We’ll canvass from 2:00 to 5:00 on Sunday March 31, meeting in front of the old Napanee Town Hall at 2:00pm. 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. We are currently at 10% of our campaign goal of Victory Club members - please consider joining!
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: https://www.electsloan.ca/donate
