Welcome to the latest in my series of tips and advice for Liberal Democrat members, which appear first in the email bulletin run by London Region for party members.
There’s a special Liberal Democrat financial fund dedicated to helping weaker local parties build up their strength and start fighting elections successfully. That’s crucial to building a sustainable and broad-based Liberal Democrat recovery.
Run by the Association of Liberal Democrat Councillors and Campaigns (ALDC), its Fighting Fund helps campaigners fight key local government by-elections and to get campaigns going in development areas.
Grants can be used for a by-election in a marginal ward that we stand a genuine chance of winning this time or within the next cycle of elections, or for supporting a new team to get going in a previously fallow area.
