The Bowen Island Arts Council, the Bowen Island Eco-Alliance, and the Bowen Island Improvement Association are pleased to co-host an ALL CANDIDATES MEETING in anticipation of the November 15 local government elections.
The date of this event is Saturday, November 1, 2014 to be held at the Bowen Island Community School Gym from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm. Baby sitting will be provided in the Community Use Room located next door to the Gym and complimentary coffee, tea and cookies will be available.
Rod Marsh, who facilitated a similar event during the last election, will do so again. There will be a brief introduction by all the candidates running for Mayor and Council, followed by questions from the floor. There will be an opportunity to submit questions on the day of the meeting, however, in order to facilitate this question/answer session, this year we are also inviting members of the community to submit questions in advance and email them no later than October 28th to the editor of the Undercurrent (email@example.com). Candidates will be chosen randomly to answer the submitted questions.
In fairness to all voices in the community, we are requesting that you restrict your advance questions through the Undercurrent editor to a maximum of TWO QUESTIONS PER PERSON. Due to time restrictions, please note that we cannot guarantee that all questions will be addressed.
This All Candidates Meeting is supported financially by the Bowen Island Municipality.
Please mark your calendars and we look forward to welcoming everyone on November 1.
