The Hustings went well last week, the speech was better than expected, the voting carried out, and the paperwork all complete – so I am now the officially approved parliamentary candidate for the Sittingbourne and Sheppey Liberal Democrats. My first interview was with some students from London who asked some surprisingly tough questions. But now the work begins.
This weekend we had our first strategy meeting to discuss tactics before and during the election campaign – and I have a long to-do list as a result. Mobilising the local party and getting our message out there is the top priority.
