To the Editor,
I would like to thank everyone who supported and helped me in my bid for a seat on city council. Although I was unsuccessful in this, my first try, I am not discouraged in placing ninth out of a field of 19.
I would especially like to thank and commend Ms. Ostwald and her civics class for sponsoring the all candidates meeting at Alberni District Secondary School. It was well organized and I particularly liked the format where each candidate was given several opportunities to respond to questions. I think it would be great if this was a start of a tradition of having ADSS students sponsoring candidates ‘meetings during every election.
This election may be over but I would encourage all participants to stay engaged in our local community democratic processes.
