I need your help. We are building a “Campaign Cabinet” and I want you to be a part of it. In February 2017, after two years I stepped aside as Board Chair. I remain a Trustee, and if the voters will have me, I offer to serve for the 2017-2021 term.
While the election isn’t until October 16th, 2017, there are many opportunities to get involved in helping out with my re-election campaign. We will be planning a campaign launch this spring, starting our door knocking, re-launching our digital campaign, and preparing for the fall election.
Campaigns are incredible learning opportunities, a chance to make new friends and learn tangible skills easily transferred to your career, your work, or (hopefully) future election campaigns. The campaign skills and friendships I made volunteering on Don Iveson’s 2007 City Council campaign still benefit my life to this day.
While “twice-incumbent advantage” is an undeniable asset, we must always campaign like we are 100 votes behind. But our campaign can serve another higher purpose: the chance to engage hundreds of our neighbours in a conversation about improving our school board, our city, and our society.
Join the team by sending me an email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information, a bit about yourself, and how you would like to get involved. Please “like” my page on Facebook, follow me on twitter, and sign up for my newsletter on www.michaeljanz.ca.
