2011 early by-election?

I was really saddened to hear that Larry McNabb passed away on the 24th. My wife Gayle was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in late March of 2003 and passed away after a 5 month fight on August 26th. Our 10th anniversary would have been the following day, I still think of her every day. My sincere and deepest condolences go out to Larry's family, he will be remembered by the many people he touched in life.

Larry was in a way part of what got me involved in the political climate of the city. When I first started attending council meetings he would come out prior to the start and bum a smoke off me and we would chat. I may not have agreed with every decission he made but I had a huge amount of respect for him and unlike others, though he did call me a liar at one meeting, he never lied to me.

So now that he is gone the news comes that we will likely have a by-election in the spring of 2011, Nanaimo must hold byelection to replace McNabb . I had to chuckle because I made a comment, see the comments to the story, that I had heard a rumour I might be running. This comment is followed by three others supporting me if I do.

The liklihood is about 99.9% that I will run and then of course have to run again in November. It is a good thing I have a lot of signs left from my last three shots, will really cut down cost I can little afford. Guess I will have to go through my other posted stuff re the last election. I believe most of what I posted then is pertinent today so my platform, updated, has changed but little.

Seems many of the issues affecting the community have a tendancy to drag on. With me what you see is what you get; HONESTY, INTEGRITY & above all NO BULLSHIT!

Anyway would appreciate any feedback that comes my way

you'll get my vote Gord!!! Nanaimo needs action, not more statistical research, meetings or false hope - I believe you can bring about this change in a meaningful way for all Nanaimo citizens. I specifically choose to vote for you to be on our city council as you have "walked the walk".... and advocate for the marginalized. I hope my friends, colleagues and fellow citizens do the right thing and vote for Gord - its' time we had someone on the counsel that brings a fresh, down to earth, action oriented approach and an all-inclusive view of what is considered community!

Thanx for the positive comment. I also hope that your friends, colleagues and fellow citizens will vote for me as well. If you e-mail me; I will include you when I send out a request to support me by voting. Use subject heading Election, and then you can feel free to forward to all. The most important thing is that people get out and vote.
