Dear Member/ Supporter
We, Mark and Kate, are writing to you now for three very important reasons.
Firstly we want to say we are very indebted to you for your support and positive encouragement during the entire election campaign. Many of you have dedicated a great deal of your time and energy to the campaign: working on stalls, leafleting and talking to people at markets, letter box leafleting and the long slog at the polling booths. We are thrilled by this level of good will and loyalty even when the hurdles of confusing and often deceptive communications were disseminated by rival parties.
As of the time of writing this letter, when 85% of the votes have been counted, the count for the Senate has the Animal Justice Party at almost 18,850 for NSW. Our position is currently 14th Party out of 44.
The national count is almost 78,500. This is outstanding according to peak political experts who have personally contacted us to say so.
While we wait for the final outcome of the Federal election, the Animal Justice Party is so enthused and keen to stride forward we have started to prepare for the NSW State election in March 2015, only eighteen months away. However, we need 750 registered NSW members no later than END OCTOBER.
So we are asking for your help:
1. If you are already a financial member of the AJP, please just fill out the NSW member declaration form (herehttp://www.elections.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0007/81277/DECLARATION_OF_PARTY_MEMBERSHIP_1_Feb_2012.pdf) and post to:
PO Box 1010
Strawberry Hills NSW 2012
2. If you are not a current member please complete and post the above form AND an AJP members form (herehttp://www.animaljusticeparty.org/join-us/) accompanied by a mere $20.00 membership fee (cheque, cash or money order).
Lastly, IF YOU JOIN UP 5 MEMBERS you will receive a free ticket to travel return to AJP’s event at the Donkey Sanctuary near Maitland on Sunday 17 November!
The day will consist of a 3-course vegan lunch with wine and of course the opportunity to meet some wonderful reduced animals and hear their stories from the sanctuary’s founder Christine Berry. For more details please email Mark at email@example.com.
If you could please sign up as many people as you possibly can – that would be wonderful.
Once again, we are deeply grateful for standing by us as we navigate a very new territory for a voice for animals. Your efforts have allowed tens of thousands of people across New South Wales and Australia itself an opportunity to pitch that voice toward the Parliament of Australia.
All the very best.
Mark Pearson & Kate Vickers
Candidates for the Animal Justice Party
