I was Press Officer for Tynedale Green Party during the 2015 General Election campaign.
My role involved writing and publishing press releases, as well as writing letters to the press on behalf of our Prospective Parliamentary Candidate. These pieces were often responses to items in the media, and resulted in widespread coverage in the local and regional press.
This assignment required a swift assimilation of complex information and ideas, and fast and accurate production of copy to very tight deadlines.
Tania acted as the Press Officer for my campaign as the Green Party candidate in the 2015 General Election. In a very short space of time, she succeeded in single-handedly raising the profile of the local party and of myself as the candidate. This was due in no small part to her integrity, enthusiasm and absolute dedication to achieving the best possible media coverage for our campaign.
Tania’s attention to detail was second to none, as was her ability to assimilate complicated issues readily in order to make them transparent to readers. The quality of Tania’s writing during the campaign was consistently outstanding and meant that press releases were readily and regularly taken up for publication in the local press with few or no editorial changes.
Tania was an absolutely delightful colleague for the duration of the campaign – friendly, dedicated and committed – and an invaluable factor in our success.
