H&D Editor stands for City and County Councils

Mark Cotterill, founder and editor of Heritage and Destiny, is contesting the Preston City Council and Lancashire County Council elections. Polling day is Thursday 6th May.

Mr Cotterill writes:

I have thrown my “political hat” into the “electoral ring” and am standing in this year’s local council elections, for Ribbleton ward (Preston City council) and Preston South East Division (Lancashire County Council), as an Independent candidate.

I thought to myself, there’s no point in just moaning about how bad the Conservative, Labour and Liberal-Democrat parties are and how the country’s going from bad to worse, but doing nothing about it, so there you go!

Yesterday I kicked off my election campaign in Grange, with two young helpers, an 18-year old girl and a 20-year-old lad – who I must admit were just a bit quicker than me on the doorsteps!

However, even with me lagging behind, we managed to leaflet almost all of the Grange estate (I had forgotten how many flats there were up there!), plus the main road leading down to Bargain Booze, plus part of the estate to the back of it.

Nominations closed yesterday, and in Preston South East, I’m up against the three old and failed political parties (so four of us in total), and the same in Ribbleton – plus the Greens (so five of us in total there). The Greens mean well, but if ever in power they would be a complete disaster for this country!

We are going to try and go out leafleting in the wards every day from now up until May 6th (polling day) so if you can lend a hand for a couple of hours that would be most appreciated (just let me know which days/times you are free and we can sort it).

Or if you can’t help us out in person, because of your job or family commitments, you can still help by sending us a donation towards the election campaign – every tenner helps! – the warm up leaflets for Ribbleton alone cost over £234!

We have already had a couple of donations from local Patriots, but we need an awful lot more if we are to fund this campaign properly.

So, if you can help, with either a donation towards the campaign and/or come out in person leafleting with us, please let me know.

You can call PM me on Facebook or call me on – 07833 677484 – or email me at – heritageanddestiny@yahoo.com – or just pop round to base.

Thanks in advance, for your help and support.
