From Kat Boettge
“I wanted to use this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year, and to thank you for all your support, hard work and donations. In 2013 we were heavily involved in preparing for the upcoming Euro Election in May of this year. We have achieved a lot including setting up a media structure, engaging further with the social media, community websites and groups. We have planned a promising campaign strategy that hopefully will get us to Brussels. Recent polls have been encouraging. Nationally the Greens are on 7%and support for the other parties is starting to fade, the public mood is very volatile and very many are looking for something new, something honest, something that addresses their needs.
We do believe that if we can get our message of hope and honesty out to enough people across our region, we can be successful. Remember, this election uses a proportional voting system, not first past the post. This gives us a real chance, but to take that chance, we will need all the help that we can get.
If you are interested in joining us in changing current politics in 2014, please contact us or just come to our next meetings. There are so many ways in which you can help, depending on your interests, experiences, time availability and skills. I am sure that we can find a suitable and exciting role or task for you. I look forward to meeting you soon.
