That's the first week of campaigning in now. We have been out knocking on doors around North Ipswich and I have spent time writing several leaflets which are now at the printers.
I was formally adopted as candidate for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich on Friday Night at a well attended meeting in Debenham. My agent, Bill, still had us out door knocking beforehand, despite the bitter wind! I gave a short acceptance speech, outlining what we were fighting for - getting people into work, help for families and more community police. Bill then outlined the campaign and ten people signed my nomination paper. We rounded off with a lively debate on MRSA - it seemed like everyone contributed to the debate.
The party members seem in good heart and this bodes well for the rest of the campaign.
