How can you help IfF in 2019?
If you really can’t be a candidate this time around but you’d like to help keep our town council independent and ambitious. Well, here are a number of ways you can help. In fact, we rely on the talent and expertise available in Frome to run our unusual and, so far, very successful campaigns.
Help select the candidates
We hope to have a choice of potential candidates. We need a panel of people to make that choice. Unusually for a town council, IfF has always had more people wanting to stand than there are places and even existing councillors who want to re-stand have to go back into the process. In particular, we’d love to hear from you if you have experience of recruitment and selection. You might also be the person we’re looking for if you have had no involvement with local or national politics before. You’d need to be prepared to give up a few hours on two or three occasions and to work with people you’ve not met before. It would be a good idea if you had read and agreed with the IfF Ways of Working! If you’re interested please drop us a line. firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re also looking for people to help run our campaign in 2019.
If you’re a communications expert and fancy having a leading role in running a political campaign we’d love to hear from you.
Equally, if you’ve got a strong background in administration and are keen to use your skills in the Frome community you could really help us run a third successful campaign.
We’re also in need of technical specialists from the world of accountancy and web design.
Getting in touch doesn’t commit you to anything and we’d be happy to chat through what’s involved before you make a decision. Write to us at email@example.com
The election is in May 2019 – the work of the selection panel would be early in the campaign and most other roles would peak nearer to that date.
If none of those specific roles fit you, as we get closer to the election there will be plenty of opportunity to get involved directly (drumming up support, making boards, delivering leaflets etc.) so keep an eye on the website, sign up to our email list and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
In 2011 IfF reclaimed local politics from the Parties and we don’t want to see it go backwards. It’s a different way of doing politics giving much greater value to everyone in the town. To keep Frome independent we need as many of us need to be involved as possible.
