Notable Replies

  1. Notifications have been sent today giving heads up (I gave early warning to ones I could reach a week ago):

    • Lisa Crosher @LisaCrosher has sent video responses to all questions already!
    • Kathy O’Neill @mummo has been notified by facebook message and this tag. (Also informed @Josh_Constable as he’s had involvement already and may be able to help).
    • Stephen Beer - I’ve sent two facebook messages, unsure if he’s seen them and have no other contact details.
    • Jason Reeves - I’ve contacted @Tracy_Weeks to let her know.

    If anyone can help get in touch with other candidates to seek confirmation if they’d like to be involved, please do. I’ll also post in Eastleigh Borough Local Politics facebook group to try reach Stephen.

  2. Happy to be part of it, thanks for your hard work Adam.

  3. Yep, Kathy (Labour) has confirmed she’ll likely get the videos to me tomorrow, and Stephen Beer (Lib Dems) also confirmed he’d like to take part. That just leaves Jason Reeves (Green)'s outstanding on a response @Tracy_Weeks . :slight_smile:

    Even if it’s a decline, a response would be good as it would allow us to move forward and get on and release the video earlier.
