The elections include one of the largest slates of nominees the council has seen in a long time. While one candidate is currently standing for each of the executive positions, eleven candidates are running for eight directorships.
President Esther Brown is stepping down after three years at the helm, but is running as a director nominee for 2011. Standing for executive posts are Penelope Johnson (for President), Darryl MacKenzie (for Vice President), Jack Bennest (for Treasurer), and Shirley Rourke (for Secretary). Nominations are still accepted for each position.
Sally Franks, Jennifer Mapplebeck, Brian Mapplebeck, Craig Rusinek, and Steve Staresina have thrown their hats back in the ring. Joining them on the slate are Esther Brown, Diane Gludovatz, Marilyn Marsel, Bernice Myllyniemi, Leann Parrent, and Roger Ulasovetz. Secretary Penny Ruddy and directors Shirley Nilsson and Hella Prochaska are stepping down. Thank you all for your work!
