I was pleased to organise a Candidates' and Key Activists' Training Day for Maidstone Borough's Conservative Candidates yesterday (Saturday 5 April). It was a great turnout with every available candidate attending. The promise of free bacon sandwiches and coffee must have done the trick! After my own presentation on the forthcoming campaign, Maidstone & The Weald MP also addressed the meeting.
I will blog further photographs soon, though everyone enjoyed the irony of the meeting being held in the Motivation Suite!
We also used the meeting to launch our powerful "EMPTY CHAIR" campaign, highlighting the irresponsibility of the Borough's opposition Lib Dems, who boycotted a recent meeting to discuss the Borough's Housing Plan, demonstrating a total lack of leadership and letting down the very people who they were elected to represent.
