I’m Dr Nik Johnson, chair of the Huntingdon Constituency Labour Party, and I’d like to offer you a warm welcome.
You join Labour at an exciting time – both locally and nationally. Principled, straight-talking, honest democratic socialist politics has engaged massive numbers of people.
We have made great strides in Huntingdon – our membership now tops 800 and continues to grow. Our members come from across the constituency with a variety of backgrounds and talent. But, the thing that unites us is democratic socialism and our determination to win the Parliamentary seat in Huntingdon for Labour – and to form a government nationally.
You may recall that I stood in the General Election in June as the Labour Party Candidate. We had a small, but brilliant, team campaigning in the run up to the election who worked their socks off. Our hard work and effort paid off and we took a hefty chunk out of our Conservative MP’s majority.
But now isn’t the time to rest on our laurels. I’m sure you have heard and read reports that another General Election may be called before the end of the year. We need your help.
We are keen to get even more of our growing membership involved – whether delivering leaflets, canvassing, joining us at events or doing the dozens of other things that keep a campaign moving forward.
We’d love to see you at one of our monthly meetings. There is a list of upcoming meetings and events on this website. Anyone of the team will be more than happy to answer your questions.
Thanks again for taking the time to read this letter. Hope to see you soon!
Dr Nik Johnson.
