North Vancouver's own political BLOG dedicated to North Vancouver's political players and the decisions that shape our community.
Obviously the western side requires better representation on council. A Little heavy coveside.
These are candidates. Map just the incumbents.
While he appears to be a polished presenter,I just want clarity on where John Gilmour lives,I could have sworn last time out John stated he lived in Lynn Valley yet tonight I'm sure he said he lives on West Windsor
I was there. He said he lived just up the street from Delbrook recCentre.
He said that he grew up in the 200 block of West Windsor and his mom still lives there. He currently lives with his wife in Lynn Valley.
What I find troubling about John Gilmour is that on his nomination papers (found here), he has reported that he makes no income in the lower mainland, but the company he works for, a developer called Magusta Development, is based in Vancouver. So... Does he work pro bono? Did he quit his job? or did he file a false financial disclosure statement?
I believe he is the VP of development for that company. I've met John a few times and he seems like a straight up guy, but this seems like someone is intentionally hiding the fact that he's a developer.
I thought they only had to declare earnings from business/holdings within the municipality they are running.
Good job. Is there a way to find out what these candidates stand for?thank you.
Read the news paper.
No, they have to declare any income from within the regional district that their Municipality is in."Local Government Officials...must list only income sources within the regional district that includes the municipality...for which the offical is elected or nominated..."The rule is poorly worded, but it clearly requires all candidates to declare all income sources within their regional district.
In my research of who I will be supporting this election I came across this video of one of the new comers. Interesting... I think Mr. Macauley has a good chance.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aw6UpPVdtbs
In my research I'll not be supporting union candidates.
This is from the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. Interesting that not ONE candidate from either the District or City of North Vancouver signed this pledge:Dear Supporter: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has secured the signatures of 86 mayor and council candidates on our Contract with Taxpayers. As you may recall, the Contract calls for limiting property tax increases to the rate of inflation, expanding direct democracy at city halls and supporting transparency initiatives like publishing expenses and submitting to a Municipal Auditor General. (To see the whole Contract, visit http://tinyurl.com/3v4wq3s.) It also asks for the introduction of a Taxpayer Protection Bylaw, which would put these rules into municipal law—and dock 15% of the pay of mayors and councillors who raised taxes beyond inflation. Please note: this is not an endorsement by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, merely a list of the 86 candidates who have signed our Contract with Taxpayers, pledging to bring in a Taxpayer Protection Bylaw if elected.
