On May 22nd there are crucial City Council and European Elections in Oxford.
We need to send out a strong message that only Labour stands up for fairness in our city in the face of the damaging policies of the Tories, Lib Dems, Greens and UKIP. Most importantly, this needs to be a message we drive forward at the 2015 General Election. We have to fight the strongest possible campaign across Oxford against not only the Coalition Government, but apathy as well.
At a time when the Lib Dem/Tory coalition government is dismantling our NHS, is attacking the most vulnerable in our society through its welfare reforms, and has stifled economic growth through savage cuts, this work is more important than ever.
If we get more Labour City Councillors elected, the Council will be in an even better position to protect vital services and deliver fairness in difficult times. Oxford’s own Anneliese Dodds is Labour’s top candidate for the South East in the European elections, and we want to send her and John Howarth, second on the list, to the EU Parliament to be a strong Labour voice for Oxford and beyond.
In order to get the best possible result on May 22nd, we need as many people helping as possible over the next few months and on Polling Day. If you can help out, please sign up on our volunteer page here: http://www.oxfordlabour.org.uk/keepuptodate. There are plenty of ways to help out, such as doorstep campaigning, delivering newsletters or volunteering in our office.
Of course, elections cost money, and one vital way you can help Labour in Oxford is by generously donating. Donations from our members and supporters are what allow us to pay for leaflets and mailings to key areas to help drive up the Labour vote. You can donate here: http://www.oxfordlabour.org.uk/donate
