Our Prospective Parliamentary Candidate, Gawain Towler, has had to stand down due to serious family and personal reasons. We extend our thanks for his input so far, and offer our best wishes to him in what are very difficult times for him and his family.
This means we have a void to fill just weeks prior to the General Election. As you will already know if you are a Dorset North member, we are calling an Extraordinary General Meeting to select our new PPC.
The closing date for nominations has now passed and we are pleased to report the good news that we have had one responder, Jeremy Nieboer, a very strong candidate. He has experience as a PPC, though not with UKIP, and has addressed the Bruges Group and Civitas and is a member of the Advisory Board of the European Foundation in the esteemed company of Lord Pearson, our leader, and Bill Cash MP under the patronage of Lady Thatcher.
Please be sure to come to hear and meet him at the EGM which is being held on the 4th February 2009 8pm at the Charlton Inn. Further details of the venue can be found in the February Newsletter.
Please do attend this important meeting and remember to bring your UKIP membership card with you to enable you to vote.
