Congratulations Councillor Johnstone
And speaking of things that are long overdue for posting, I have been remiss in writing a congratulatory posting to my friend, Patrick Johnstone, on his recent election to New Westminster City Council. As you may recall from this posting, I was helping out on Pat’s election campaign because I thought he’d make an excellent city councillor and, apparently, other people in New Westminster agreed with me, because Pat was one of 6 people elected to city council, along with a new mayor and 7 school trustees. On election night I actually went to city hall to watch election results roll in, which was a lot more fun than you’d expect from staring at a screen with tiny little font where nothing happened for long periods of time and then the results would pop up from another poll and everyone would start excitedly talking about where in that city the poll was and who got lots of votes from it and what it all meant. After that, a bunch of us headed down to the campaign office and there was a big party!
Incidentally, “participate in a political campaign” is on my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days, so that means I get to knock that item off the list! Which means I’ve done 15 things from my 101 lists ((3 from my previous list and 12 from my current list) in 2014. Which is far less than my goal of 28 things, so I really better get going, as there’s less than a month left!
