Update on my City Council bid / new dates & deadlines

I want to say a big “thank you” to the lovely folks who have promised to join the Green Party of Vancouver and come to the nomination meeting to help me get approved as a Green candidate! That’s a lot more to ask of people than just clicking on a petition, so I’m delighted at the show of support.

Please note that KEY DATES HAVE CHANGED.
  • Deadline for joining Vancouver Greens*: Wednesday, June 13.
  • Nomination meeting: Wednesday, June 27.

*Those voting at the meeting need to have been members for two weeks.

The meeting will be held at Heritage Hall at Main @ 15th, on the evening of June 27th. Exact time TBA (I’ll advise by email). 

While I have 14 people committed to support me, I need to have a lot more in order to be confident of gaining a slot on the Green slate. So, if you haven’t yet, I hope you can join the Greens and attend the meeting. (I understand though if that is too much to ask – I know that some people prefer not to join political parties and I totally respect that – just so long as you vote come election time!)

Again, here is the link for joining the Green Party of Vancouver ($10 is the minimum for a one-year membership). You’ll not only get to help me become a candidate, you’ll also get an inside view of the political process, meet some really interesting folks, and help choose the entire slate of Green candidates!

PS – If you’re so inclined, you can also keep tabs on my progress, and tell me about what’s important to you in the upcoming civic election, by following my Facebook page: “Adam Abrams for City Council“!

PPS – I wrote this blog article going into more depth on my reasons and motivations for running for Council.
