So I’m officially not running for anything…
… this time around.
I was, however, very tempted to run down to City Hall around noon to register as a school Board Trustee candidate in my zone; where there was no one contesting the lone candidate who filed his papers. But whammo! someone named Talis-Ilmars Brauns has filed and will provide some opposition to Mr. Ellis. Great to see!
Even though I am not running, I will live vicariously through and help out:
– Jean Cloutier: who will be a fine representative for Alta Vista on Council. Jean and I have worked together at the Canterbury Community Association for about 4 years… top shelf fellow! Hard-working. And he knows our community inside and out.
– Riley Brockington: who is a colleague and a former OCDSB Trustee who gave me lots of advice and motivation in 2010. He will serve well in River Ward.
– Martin Canning: former Environmental Advisory Committee Chair. He is running a very enviro and community-focussed campaign in Somerset. He has a great team and he’s also a top shelf guy.
Plus, I wish my brother, Jim Marshall, all the best in his quest for a seat at the Council table in my old home town of Parry Sound. My bro is a man who exemplifies integrity and hard work. The folks in P Dot will be well-served.
