Bro T Corbin: Official campaign launch event – 20 June.
Bro T Corbin (Salisbury Branch) has been selected as Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for the Salisbury Constituency.
Tom believes that if we campaign effectively and work together we have a fantastic opportunity to advance the Labour cause: “Since the disaster of the last general election we have seen the Labour Party come together at both a local and national level and we can be proud of what we have achieved locally in the Police and Crime Commissioner elections in 2012, the Wiltshire and Parish elections in 2013, the by-election for Salisbury City Council in January2014 and the European Elections in May. We need to use this momentum to launch our bid for the general election in 2015, we need to work together and we need to start now.”
Tom’s official campaign launch event will be held at The Red Lion Hotel in Salisbury on Friday 20th June from 19:30 to 22:00.Complimentary refreshments will be available and also a cash bar.
Any ASLEF members wishing to support this event will be welcome as will their family and friends. Please inform Tom's election Campaign Manager Mark Timbrell if you are able to make it or if you have any questions.
