Oh What a Team!

TEAM Burnaby Voters Association hopefuls have been out in force this past week. Rumoured candidate G. Bruce Friesen continues his campaign to get a weekly column in the Burnaby Now letters section (to counteract the BCA column by Tony Coccia and the BC NDP column by Brian O'Neill) with a lengthy op-ed piece that touches on the pet cause of Burnaby political irrelevance, Burnaby Lake.

Former Burnaby School Trustee Barbara Spitz is appealing to TEAM members via the mail. It has come to Burnaby Politics' attention that Spitz has been sending out letters asking for TEAM Burnaby members to consider her as one of their choices at TEAM's candidate selection meeting on September 14th. Spitz's letter touches on a variety of Burnaby issues, mentions her past political and volunteer experience, and notes that 14 people are seeking the eight nominations.

At the moment both Spitz and Friesen are believed to be among the favourites for the eight council spots along with former mayoral candidate and BCAer turned TEAM councilor Lee Rankin.
