York Labour Party today held it’s second scheduled Super Campaign Saturday in the Rawcliffe and Clifton Without ward.
Six Super Campaign Satudays have been scheduled in the run up to the May council elections. On these days, activists from across the city leave their own wards to help campaign in one of the winnable target wards which will help Labour win back control of the council. On this occasion, Labour were out in force to support the candidacies of Rebecca Frewtrell, Dave Merrett and Will Bossman.
Labour are looking to increase the seats held in council by nine, in order to secure overall control of the council. Everyone in the York party is clear that this will not be an easy job, but today’s campaigning sessions showed that it is a task that the party is up for. Close to 50 canvassers took to the streets to spread the message, with around 2,000 addresses visited and nearly a thousand people spoken to.
They say the way to win elections is to get out on the streets and talking to the people. With this sort of commitment, York Labour are hoping to secure a bright future for the people of York.
