A prospective MP has been first out of the traps in Gloucestershire to launch a 3 minute campaign video.
The video, filmed on the streets of Cirencester, Tetbury, Northleach, Bourton and other iconic villages, vox pops local residents.
In a series of personal endorsements people interviewed give their view of Mr Hodgkinson and his track record locally.
A district and county councillor for eight years, Paul says that campaigning via the internet and social media is the big story of the 2015 election:
“There’s still a place for leaflets and letters but so many people now get their news and information online. Making this video was just one way of reaching out to people so they can be fully informed when they go and vote.”
