This week I have been canvassing door to door around the Ward. Unfortunately I won’t have time to get round to all homes in Worksop South but I will try to get to as many as possible between now and the election. Even so I wanted to share some of my impressions so far.
As this is the first time I have been canvassing, I am surprised at how much fun it is. Although there are some that are not pleased to see me, most of the people I have disturbed have been happy to talk to me and I have found out more about the issues that affect you on a day to day basis. It is also a chance to introduce myself to voters and to explain why I am standing in the election. I have found that there is a wide spread distrust of the current crop of politicians, both local & national. I have also enjoyed having discussions about politics. I hope I have been able to show the those I have talk to why represent a different style of politics to the candidates from the other parties & that, if elected, I will be representing Worksop South rather rather than the local party machine.
If I don’t get a chance to talk with everyone, please feel free to contact me, see details on this page, & I will be happy to take up any local issues that you may have.Leave a comment
