Tim Farron says: “Help get the vote out for Christine Jardine”

For the last month, Team Christine has done a power of work in the Holyrood by-election in Aberdeen Donside. They have delivered an incredibly good campaign which has gone down very well on the doorsteps in Bridge of Don, Dyce, Danestone and Kingswells for our energetic, warm and generally wonderful candidate Christine Jardine.

Today is polling day and, for the occasion, Tim Farron has recorded a video. He has been doing some phoning for Christine, which has been very much appreciated. His spies have obviously told him how fabulous Liberal Youth Scotland have been, with many of them putting their lives on hold to be part of the campaign team.

If you want to do what Tim says, here’s three ways you can help:

  • If you can come and help in person, the Team Christine HQ  is at 8 Scotstown Road, Bridge of Don, AB23 8HS.
  • If you can’t make it to help on the ground, could you make some canvassing phone calls for us? If you have a Connect account then you can use the virtual phone bank. The code is AB74BN – 4601.
  • If you can’t do either of these we would really appreciate your help in paying the election bills! You can donate here.

Christine finished off her campaign by repeating her promise that she would fight to build a stronger and fairer Aberdeen, which the SNP Government has repeatedly short-changed, in Holyrood:

Everyone in Aberdeen knows that we have real issues with local roads and transport links. But these problems are a symptom of the fact that Aberdeen has been short-changed so badly by the SNP on key funding.

We have lost out on £21m essential financial support thanks to the SNP in government. This is simply not good enough. The SNP voted for this unfair settlement in Edinburgh and Labour have failed to make the case for change on the council.

Mark McDonald has ducked and dived around this issue throughout the campaign but the fact is that he backed the SNP’s shameful spending plans at Holyrood.

As MSP for Donside, I would take the fight to stop the SNP short-changing Aberdeen to Ministers and rattle their cage on my very first day at Holyrood. That is what a vote for the Liberal Democrats will help deliver. We will work to stop the SNP from short changing the city and take real action to build a stronger and fairer Aberdeen.
