Campaign electSloan Weekly Update

May 7 2019


Last Week around H-L&A

We had great weather in Napanee for canvassing last Sunday, and some great volunteers too!

Last Friday was an exciting day!  We welcomed MP Michelle Rempel to our riding.  A certified sommelier, Ms Rempel toured our riding's award-winning Potter’s Settlement Winery in Tweed and gave a speech to Campaign Sloan Victory Club members. My family also enjoyed meeting her!

Ms. Rempel is the Shadow Minister for Citizenship, Immigration & Refugees, and so following her visit to Tweed, she attended a Refugee Roundtable at Morningstar Mission in Napanee to hear input from a very engaged and positive group of people who work with refugees. The group also heard and responded to Ms. Rempel’s ideas on how to protect our immigration system and make it more fair, compassionate and efficient. This was an excellent discussion--and I found it to be a great time to learn more about our system and the work being done in our area to help the world’s most vulnerable people. 


Ms. Rempel then joined our team, as well as candidate Tim Durkin and team members from Bay of Quinte, to knock on doors in Napanee.

Then the main event; the full house that gathered at the Napanee Legion heard speeches by me and Ms. Rempel.  As always, Ms Rempel was passionate, down to earth, and extremely knowledgeable on the issues and challenges our country is facing.  We are very happy that the Liberals have to face her regularly in Question Period!

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.


With thanks,
