Sunday 27th October saw the West Midlands hold their regional fundraiser for the 2014 euro elections in Coventry. Alwyn Deacon, West Midlands Regional Organiser and National Elections Officer opened the meeting and explained to the audience what was needed to fight a good effective campaign and hopefully return an MEP for the region.
Nick Griffin MEP and party Chairman was next up and gave a insight to the work of a MEP and gave some examples of his time as a MEP.
Alwyn Deacon then announced the candidate list for the West Midlands and it is as follows.
1 Mike Coleman, ex Stoke-on-Trent Councilor and current organiser for the Stoke branch, Mike is an excellent choice, very hard working and would make a great MEP.
2 Jennifer Matthys, Party Membership Secretary and events co-ordinater.
3 Kenneth Griffiths, Dudley Organiser
4 Simon Patten, Wolverhampton Organiser
5 David Bradnock, Wolverhampton Fundholder
6 Mark Badrick, Coventry Organiser
7, Phillip Kimberley, Nuneaton & Bedworth Fundholder
After a short break the meeting resumed with Mike Coleman giving a excellent speech which was well received.
