Hello, I'm Colin Martin. 👋

I am working hard to become your MP in South East Cornwall

With your help, I want to raise £15,000 to support my campaign.

Our campaign

I am fundraising because elections are expensive. Our Conservative MP is supported by donations by ultra-wealthy individuals who have nothing to do with South East Cornwall. Why is Lubov Chernukhin, the wife of the former Russian deputy finance minister Vladimir Chernukhin giving thousands of pounds to Sheryll Murray's re-election campaign?! What do they expect to receive in return?

Liberal Democrats do not receive donations like this, so I am building my election fund with the help of local residents and businesses.

Our constituency has over 70,000 voters in 39,000 houses - that's a lot of doors to knock on! We want to ensure we reach as many people as possible.

With your donations, we will be able to:

✅ Print more of our campaign literature to match and exceed the Tories in the 'ground campaign'

  • £10 buys 260 A4 leaflets. (Royal Mail will deliver up to 39,000 of these for free)
  • £100 buys 1,000 glossy magazines (We need to pay for 32,000)

✅ Pay for postage and delivery services to ensure our leaflets reach all corners of our rural constituency

  • £100 pays for 400 leaflets to be delivered
  • £1,000 pays for 4,000 leaflets to be delivered

✅Deliver a first-class advertising campaign to reach all voters, including both newspaper and social media advertising

  • £50 pays for a Facebook ad to be seen 8,000 times
  • £150 pays for a front-page advert in the Cornish Guardian

After just one week, we have already raised over £7,000, but we need to raise the rest as soon as possible so we have time to spend it before election day!

Why I'm standing

I'm standing because our Conservative MP has failed our area for fourteen years. South East Cornwall deserves to be represented by someone who will speak up and fight for solutions that make a positive difference here. 

We need a local MP who:

🧑‍🤝‍🧑Will put their community first. I have been campaigning in South East Cornwall for many years, including seven years on Cornwall Council.

🏠 Has a track record of tackling the housing crisis by building more affordable homes and reducing the number of properties being converted into holiday accommodation.

🌡️Cares about the climate emergency and wants to make the serious changes needed to cut both our carbon emissions and our energy bills.

💩Will stand up against South West Water's pollution of our rivers and beaches, and who is championing a radical rethink of the water industry.

🏩Is passionate about health and social care. Simply pouring more money into hospitals is not the answer: Proper funding and decent wages in social care would help people to get out of hospital as soon as they are ready. Real investiment in prevention and early intervention would reduce the number of people going into hospital in the first place. And treating mental health on a par with physical health would transform the lives of millions of people.
