As you know on May 2nd 2019 we have the local elections being held in Poole, as part of my own campaign I would like to send in the following letter, hopefully it will entice other candidates to do the same.
Dear Disgruntled Voters…
I am fully aware that with the fiasco of Brexit many people are currently despondent about the democratic process of voting and it is fully understandable that many think that voting is a waste of time, why bother, if they simply do not accept the results of the vote? However on May 2nd 2019, we have the local elections across the UK and here in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, it is imperative that people do go and vote to ensure we all get good representation on this new BCP Council. Otherwise, the same lot that sat back and allowed this combined authority plan to happen will be the ones who get re-elected and as the old saying goes, many a bad politician is elected by people who do not vote. So I urge people to vote and make sure that they look very closely at who they will be voting for on May 2nd to represent them in all 33 wards of the BCP region.
I am standing as a candidate in the Newtown & Heatherlands ward of Poole and due to my disability I will struggle to get round to every household in the ward and I certainly do not have the manpower nor funding to flood your letterbox with leaflets as some have already started doing but I will certainly try to speak to as many people as possible through various means of communication. However, if anyone has any direct questions they want answering, they can always me via my website www.martycaine.com
As I am applying for the job to represent you on this new BCP Council I would like to be interviewed by as many of you as possible and I am pleased to say that people are already messaging me on my Facebook campaign page ‘Marty Caine – Newtown & Heatherlands’ to ask me questions. Anyone else is more than welcome to do the same or simply contact me and arrange a time when it is convenient for you and I will call round to see you.
Please do not waste your vote because of the current shambles in parliament, local government is a separate thing altogether and we need to ensure we all get the right kind of representation by electing people who will stand up for you, rather than any particular party. I honestly cannot stress that point enough.
Newtown & Heatherlands Candidate for Engage
On a secondary note, something else that BHLiving may be interested in, I have serious concerns about Poole losing its unique identity because of this combined authority plan and to ensure that Poole’s identity and history is kept alive for future generations to come I have created a new social media hub specifically for the people of Poole. A place where people can share information and stories about Poole on a platform designed so people only follow things that are of interest to them. If successful it could provide a truly useful community hub for Poole that will be useful for so many different things.
