East Lothian Liberal Democrats are in a mess. The last meeting of it’s Executive Committee was in April this year. There have been no meetings since the elections in May. The last communication to members only was in the run-up to the AGM last year. There has been no comms by email or post letting members know who the new office bearers are.
There are no plans to campaign. I have tried to alert them to possible migration from our current web-site and bulk email system. I mentioned costs would increase from £17 p/m to £45 p/m as a “development party”. That caused concern from the Treasurer. I raised several points over the costs but the key people haven’t responded. I am not taking the migration any further.
I could, in theory, start campaigning myself at my own cost but need to sort out leaflets first. I’m still thinking about it. It would give me something to do. I am not going to be chasing the local party to do anything, just sit on my hands and wait.
