Money challenge for candidate

Dawn Gibson
Tuesday, May 27, 2014

ASPIRING politician and leader of Be the Change Campaign Roshika Deo continues to campaign to reach her goal of 1000 signatures.

But she admits that financially, it can be challenging.

The self-proclaimed feminist said, however, it was very encouraging to see her campaign had been going really well around the country.

"For us, one of the biggest barriers is the resources and finances," Ms Deo said in an interview.

"I think we have the network, the commitment, we have the dedication, the drive and the passion, but what's lacking are our resources, for sure."

Ms Deo said this meant they had to approach campaigning in a more strategic way and use their network wherever possible.

"For instance, we don't have the money to get a bus and paint it, we don't have money to get a taxi to attract people. So for us, we're relying on talking to people and approaching people.

"For us as a group, we're really trying to strategise and plan the different ways in which we can do this, to make this part of campaigning a little easier for us.

"But so far, the campaigning has been going really well and we're pleased with the recent drive in Laucala Beach and Nasinu."
