Vancouver Contest Updates

I’ve just tallied votes and updated rankings in the Vancouver Voters’ Guide Blogging Contest. Bill Tieleman moved up from #8 to #6, changing places with In Support of Public Education. And we welcome new contestant The Vancouver Observer!

Vancouver Contest: The race is on!

Two races, actually.

In the blogging contest, The Tyee and David Eby are neck-&-neck, with Tyee ahead in this week’s ranking and David ahead in total awards to date. We’ve awarded $1500 so far in our first 5 weeks.

It’s a great time to blog about Vancouver civic issues, now that NPA has nominated Peter Ladner and Vision has chosen Gregor Robertson. We voters need some insight to help us choose between these superficially similar candidates for mayor.

As a member of Fair Voting BC, I helped conduct the Vision Vancouver 3-way nomination vote last Sunday – hectic but fun!
