This weekend, activists took to the streets of the Huntington and New Earswick ward for the first of a series of Super Campaign Saturdays to win back the City of York Council for the Labour Party. Over the course of two sessions, morning and afternoon, over 60 campaigners joined candidates Alex Mair, Chloe Anderson and Ian Craven to knock on on doors and speak to around 700 people in this important target ward.
York Labour’s campaign team have organised six Super Campaign Saturdays in all, each in one of the key marginal wards ward needed to take back control of the council. These mass canvassing sessions are intended to give the campaign a boost and help secure more votes.
Campaign Co-ordinator Ian Bissell said: “With just 15 weeks to go until Election Day on May 2, every campaigning and door knocking session counts. The more voters that councillor candidates and activists can talk to, the better the chances of those voters ticking the box for Labour.”
