For the 2017 by-election, our nominating conference was held on August 29 and we decided to nominate just one candidate, Diana Day, for the school board but to refrain from nominating a Council candidate so as to not split the vote with Jean Swanson who embodies our ideals at least as well as anyone we could have put forward against her.

See our candidate information page (at for more information about Diana and her campaign, or check out her own website (at and her facebook page and follow her on twitter (as @DianaDayDream).
