The Liberal riding association of Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington (L-F-L-A) held their first Strategic Planning meeting on June 9th. The caring and charismatic group of 20, represented only a small fraction of the booming Liberal membership in this currently Conservative riding. The members who attended the event were engaged, knowledgeable, and happy to push forward with the continued rebuilding of their Liberal Party.
Despite the May 2011 election results the group was aglow with humour, smiles and ideas. The riding of Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox & Addington has been held by a Conservative member since its creation in 2004, yet the Liberal membership in the riding increases every month. The group was overjoyed that they could work through the Strategic Planning event, being able to brainstorm what is needed to achieve their goals for 2013, 2014 and 2015.
In the end, the L-F-L-A riding has committed to:
• Keeping its ears to the ground
• Building a strong association
• Increasing the Liberal presence in the area
• Maintaining engagement with youth, members and residents of the riding through a variety of activities and events.
