First Participant of 2018

I have reached out to most candidates for both city elections and School District Elections. The​ nomination period closed at 4:00pm on September 14th. There a few more candidates that I will be reaching out to in the next couple of days to invite to submit their information.

Tim BennettWe do have an update from one of the School District #57 trustee candidates, Mr. Tim Bennett. Tim has participated in PGELXN.com in the past and we are glad to have him participate again in 2018. I have added his write up to his 2018 page with his updated contact information. Please feel free to wander over to his page and read what he hopes to accomplish if elected for another term as a school trustee. You can also look at his 2014 page and see what his platform was then as well. Thank you Tim for your participation and good luck.

Hopefully Tim is the first of many candidates participation in 2018!

Back In The Saddle Again!

987654 Well it’s that time again. With municipal elections scheduled for October 20th, 2018 the campaign signs are starting to clutter the roadsides. I will again be trying to collect as much information to put on this site and give to you the voter. The goal has been and still is to make it easier for the citizens of Prince George access the information for all candidates and help get people out to vote. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for updates as I get responses from the candidates and post them on the site. Happy Voting!

Time is Near!

1355643

Well this will be the last post before the big day tomorrow, so lets do a bit of housekeeping. First just a reminder that you can vote from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm at any of the locations listed below:

  • Blackburn Community Center
  • DP Todd Secondary School
  • Edgewood Elementary School
  • John McInnis Center
  • Kelly Road Secondary School
  • Malaspina Elementary School
  • Ron Brent Elementary School
  • Vanway Elementary School

So get out there and let your council know you care.

Second I would like to thank Albert Koelher for participating in the pgelxn blog. I would also like to thank school board trustee candidates Katie Cooke, Don Sabo, Denise MacdonaldDori Alger, Tony Cable, Trish Bella, and Valentine Crawford all for participating as well. I have chatted with candidates and it looks like this election was a lot more work than ones past so I hope that means that more people are getting out to vote. Maybe positive changes are coming for our city.

Thirdly I was sent an email the other day that gave me a huge boost. This blog takes a lot of time during election time and I do it because I want to help make Prince George a great city. So when I get emails like the one below

“Thanks for hosting all of this information centrally.  This made me feel a lot more informed regarding the candidates and perceived issues for Prince George.  I think this is the push I need to get out and vote this year. A great big thank you!  Laura”

it makes it all worthwhile. My goals has always been to get more people out to vote and with the number of views I have been getting this last week (3026 on Thursday and 2768 as of 10:08pm on Friday) I know people are finding value in this blog.

The fourth and last thing I would like to talk about is something that happened to one of the council candidates. Unfortunately Trent Derrick answers to his Prince George Citizen questions got switched with someone else and he is getting dragged through the mud for these other answers. I don’t know what happened at the Prince George Citizen, but Trent has proved me a link to his correct answers on the updated Citizen article on their website. Follow the link below

Filling Up Fast

GOTV-Voting-HandsYesterday I created pages for the School Board Trustee candidates and they have been filling up fast. Thank you to Andrew Burton, Tim Bennett, Brenda HookerBruce WiebeDennis FudgeSheldon Harris for participating in the blog. Yesterday we finished with 1987 visit to the blog for information. Keep spreading the word and let the people of Prince George know that there is a place to help them make a decision.

I just found an article on HQPrinceGeorge.com about how Prince George has been challenged by Kamloops to beat them in Voter turn out. I think this is a great challenge and lets kick some Kamloops butt!

2 More Councilors + 18 School Board Trustees

VoteWell we only have 5 more day until we vote for our new Mayor and Council. I would like to thank Ron Gallo and Roy Spooner for participating in the pgelxn blog. Have you decided who your voting for yet?

I have been getting a ton of e-mails from people asking for information about the School Board Trustees. I have caved to the pressure and add a school trustee page for each candidate running for those positions. I know it is a bit late in the game, but time is hard to come by right now. So I hope this will help those that have been asking and I hope that the candidates get their information in.

Today has being a crazy day on the pgelxn blog. Besides adding pages for all of the School Board Trustees, and getting at least 20 emails from all you great people, the visits to the blog have been through the roof. Today alone (as of 2:45pm) we are sitting at 1086 visits. That is amazing and I can not thank the citizens of Prince George for supporting this blog.

I got an email yesterday from Chelsea asking about when and were people can vote and what time. She had an interesting idea about how to get people out to vote. Now her idea is not rocket science, but a great idea none the less and one that I did not think about and wonder if the city has thought about it. Chelsea idea revolved around sending out a simple reminder card stating where, when, and what time you can vote. A lot of people may not know that information and a simple card in the mail could fix that. A great idea and a simple one. For those of you that do not know the When and where’s of this coming election here you go:

November 5th, 2014 (Advanced Voting) 8:00am to 8:00pm

  • City Hall

November 12th, 2014 (Advanced Voting) 8:00am to 8:00pm
