Proceeds and Allocation
In the age of digital marketing and communication, we are investing heavily into our website not only to communicate our platform, but to educate new voters and to build a robust resource library for the community.
Our campaign staff consists of volunteers with full-time jobs and school. It is important that we take care of our team, by showing our volunteers gratitude, so our campaign can effectively serve and pour out into the community.
Community Events and Rallies
As we are an upcoming grassroots group, it is important that we generate momentum in the community by hosting small and large scale events. We are prepared to take our message to the neighbourhoods of Ward 6 and this will require strong logistical support and event coordination.
Elections are won on the ground through conversations at the door. As of August, we will be heading out to the neighbourhoods of Ward 6 and we will be prepared with printed literature to help communicate our message in writing.
Lawn Signs and Posters
We will be offering lawn signs and posters to supporters in Ward 6 to create a presence in the neighbourhoods. This is essential for establishing credibility as a campaign on the ground.
From August to October, we will be utilizing digital advertisements on social media to broadcast our message and get votes out the door.
