Last Week around H-L&A
Hoping you all had a safe and happy Victoria Day weekend! We were in north Belleville this past week, knocking on doors and sharing our positive Conservative message. We are very thankful for some warmer weather!

CHANGE of DATE!
Because of an unavoidable change in his schedule, MP Ed Fast will be visiting our riding on Wednesday June 6, rather than on June 13 as previously announced. Mr. Fast is the MP for Abbotsford and the Shadow Minister for Environment and Climate Change and we are looking forward to hearing about our party’s positive and effective plans for conservation and protecting our environment! We will be hosting a reception for Mr. Fast at the Lions Club in Napanee from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. Stay tuned for more details, and invite a friend--especially one who is concerned about environmental protections and climate change. You can purchase tickets at www.electsloan.ca/fast; $15 in advance, $20 at the door. (This event is being run on a cost-recovery basis.)

We will also welcome MP Blake Richards (Banff-Airdrie) to our riding on Sunday June 16! We'll be knocking on doors together in north Belleville, and we will be holding a public meet-and-greet at 6:00 pm at the Signal Brewery in Corbyville to give folks in our riding a chance to meet and chat with him. Mr. Richards is the Shadow Minister for Small Business, Export Promotion and Tourism, and has been recognized three times as the "Hardest Working and Best Constituency MP" in The Hill Times' Annual Survey! He is also known as a vocal advocate for victims of crime.

Today marks 5 months until Election Day! As many of you know, H-L&A is considered a “swing riding” as it was won by only a few hundred votes in 2015. We are very confident we will turn it blue this fall--but we need all hands on deck in order to do so!
We have secured campaign office space in Napanee and will be opening sometime around Canada Day--stay tuned! Of course there will be lots of office volunteer positions available; email us at info@electSloan.ca if you're interested in helping with the campaign. We have a job for every skill set - there is a lot to be done!
Canvassing this week
I'll be knocking on doors this Sunday (May 26) in Bancroft from 2:00 to 5:00 pm. We’ll meet in the parking lot of North Hastings High School, 14 Monck St, Bancroft. If you live in the south part of our riding and would like to help, we'll be carpooling from Madoc - meet us at 1:00 pm in the McDonald's parking lot at the corner of Hwy 7 and Hwy 62 (email us at info@electSloan.ca if you need a ride). Remember, no experience is necessary and we'll team you up with an experienced door-knocker and teach you our simple canvassing technique. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can make it!

Join the Victory Club!
To reach our goal of being election-ready, we are launching Victory Club, a program that will go a long way towards reaching our fundraising target and will give us the necessary tools to run a successful campaign. Our target can be reached if only 250 people donate $400. A $400 donation costs you only $100 out-of-pocket after the generous tax credit! And remember, every eligible member of your household can donate separately and join our Victory Club. We recently had a husband and wife donate $400 each--$800 for the campaign and only $200 out-of-pocket for them! See below for donation info.
As always, we are grateful for your support for this Campaign and we will keep working together to spread our positive Conservative vision for Canada and for Hastings—Lennox & Addington. Donations of any amount are always welcome: When you give to our local Conservative association (up to the 2019 max. of $1600), that money stays right here in HLA, and up to 75% of your donation could be eligible for a tax credit on your 2019 tax return. We can accept donations from Canadian individuals only (not from corporations or businesses). Cheques should be made payable to H-L&A Conservative Association and sent to PO Box 111, Madoc, Ontario, K0K 2K0. We cannot accept cash or credit card information through the mail; however, you can donate online at: www.electsloan.ca/donate.
