Election Appeal: Help re-elect Willie Rennie – DONATE to his campaign TODAY

Over the next five weeks, Lib Dem Voice is going to be asking all our Lib Dem-supporting readers to consider making a donation to support five candidates standing for the party at the imminent general election.

We know many of you will already be donating to the national party and/or your local party. We know not everyone will be able to afford to make a donation. But we hope that as many of you as are able will spare whatever spare cash you can to support the Lib Dem candidates we will be profiling in the coming weeks.

Here is the link to make a donation
If you use this link, the party will give us an update on what Lib Dem Voice readers have donated, and we will keep you informed as the fundraising total increases.

Willie Rennie for Dunfermline – Because Gordon Brown needs a good MP!

Since his stunning by-election win in 2006, Willie has not only been a hard-working local MP, he has also played a key role for the party across the country and at Westminster. As defence spokesman he has challenged the Government on Trident, troops’ pay, and on Iraq and Afghanistan. He was campaign manager for numerous successful election campaigns, was chief executive for the Scottish Lib Dems, and is now Chair of the Party’s Campaigns and Communications Committee.

Back home he’s led a strong campaign to stop Labour winning back Dunfermline – Gordon Brown’s back yard. He ensured the Lib Dems won the Scottish Parliament seat in Dunfermline in 2007, and helped the Lib Dems take control of the local council. Now the battle is on to hold onto his seat at Westminster. With Labour throwing money at the seat, and government ministers visiting more than ever, Willie needs all the support he can get. He has the team in place with the skills to win. But he needs your help so he has the resources to make it happen.

So many people invested so much time and effort to help Willie win four years ago. You can protect your investment by supporting Willie’s campaign today.

And Gordon Brown needs a good MP!

Please make a donation today to help ensure Dunfermline re-elects Willie Rennie as a Lib Dem MP.

  • I may be a bit cynical, but I would have thought all sitting MPs could have managed to entice enough large donations from within their own constituencies to get up to the legal maximum.

    @Niklas – just to clarify, yes they will. There is a reference code on the URL which means these donations will go through the system as donations to Willie’s campaign.

  • Erlend Watson 19th Feb '10 - 8:12am

    John in the specific case of Willie I think that a byelection winner is less likely to have made the local structure in the 1st term to be independent of financial support. They will also need some physical support from local parties within reach but that is not for appeals here.

    Not knowing who the other seats are I am not yet going to make the case for them.
