Nominations for the municipal elections closed yesterday. As of 4pm, there were 2 people running for Mayor in Esquimalt and 14 people running for the 6 Council seats.
Clearly, its time for a change here in Esquimalt. I am so impressed that 14 people feel strongly enough about our township that they are willing to step up and work hard on Council. Even more impressive is the fact that 6 of these people are categorized as "under 40."
I'm looking forward to getting to know some of the people I haven't met yet.
