Local party – missing bits of the campaign

The Scottish Parliament Election has to be done differently this time round. This affects how the local party can go about campaigning. This should be done digitally but many aspects of this approach are being missed.

There has been no attempt to send emails to members and registered supporters encouraging them to join in. There has bee no use of email to the approximate 290 people living in the Holyrood constituency that could get emails from us (this figure includes members etc.) There has been no attempt to upload articles to the website. There may be letters going in to local paper, articles appearing in there too but not provided to me to post on website or send as an email. I’m not screen scraping articles, I want original. These are things I could and am willing to help with.

The recent financial appeal letter could have included a window poster in the envelope but no, none was included – have they purchased any?

The team conducting the campaign has little experience and they are not asking those with experience to help out or provide advice.

I’m am not raising things unless asked.
