New Beginnings…Official Nomination Period Begins.

Today is the official start to the nomination period for Vancouver’s municipal elections.  In anticipation for my appointment with the Elections Officer, I have been gathering all of the necessary paperwork to be submitted into City Hall.  Apparently my candidate picture and profile can be submitted online.  While investigating the additional requirements for my candidate profile and picture, I discovered that the city will publish any social media information I may have available; and so this blog was born!  Only 47 days until election day!
