Wow! It is hard to believe that there are only 12 days until the polls close and Slocan will elect our new council! The Village of Slocan will be providing 2 advanced voting opportunities for those who are unable to vote on general election day. The first advanced voting opportunity is tomorrow - Wednesday, November 5th from 8 am to 8pm. The second advanced voting opportunity will be the following Wednesday, November 12th from 8 am to 8 pm. General voting day is on Saturday, November 15, from 8 am to 8 pm. All voting opportunities take place at the Village of Slocan Office (Council Chambers) located at 503 Slocan Street.
I still have a lot of doors to knock on - and people to connect with. I have been enjoying the opportunity to speak with each of you - to hear your ideas, perspectives, and concerns. I am inspired by each of our conversations. If I have not yet connected with you - and you need to vote tomorrow, please feel free to contact me directly at 250.355.2579. I will make it a priority to visit with you this evening!
A quick reminder that an All Candidates forum will be held tonight, Thursday October 30th at the Slocan Legion Hall from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. It is a great opportunity to meet the candidates and ask any questions that you may have. I look forward to seeing you there!
Nominations are in - and there is an exciting mix of new and old seeking election into municipal office for the Village of Slocan! With the deepest gratitude and respect for all candidates who have put their names forward, I look forward to listening and conversing with candidates and the community over the next few weeks. Elections do bring energy and attention to the priorities, challenges, issues and opportunities facing our Village. I am always so proud of our community - as we typically can boast high turnout rates and participation in our municipal election..... another demonstration that we are a Village of people who care! <3
