One last nomination critique

More TEAM Burnaby Voters Association goodies in advance of tomorrow night's meeting.

The organization had it's education policy event this past Saturday. Supposedly there was some colourful behaviour.

Now onto the letters...

Garth Evans and Gary Begin pull out the big endorsements in their appeal for support on September 14 for their council candidate bids. Both are endorsed by MLA Richard T. Lee. Begin is also commended by the Edmonds Community School principal for his ability to "walk the talk." Evans sticks to a straight up letter format and sent it from work by the looks of the envelopes. Begin has the glossy paper and colour pictures in what is the best looking nomination piece yet out of a TEAM candidate. Begin's flyer is double sided but he could have benefitted significantly from making his name stand out as well as the organization's name or the nomination date.

The "Robin Ross for Council" letter from Robin J. Ross asks that supporters "Please save one vote for me!" Given current events in the Lower Mainland, Ross may benefit from the throw away statement "Burnaby Lake is rapidly becoming a bog." Ross is a former Canadian Armed Forces officer, a SFU grad, a longtime Burnaby resident and a longtime community volunteer.
The last piece Burnaby Politics is aware of is from Mark Hilford, who is seeking a council spot. Hilford, a trial lawyer, uses the strongest language saying, "we have a chance to get rid of No-Can-Do-Corrigan and his cohorts."

Each of these appeals to members for support at the nomination are stronger than earlier letters from their nomination rivals.

Heard that Hilford doesn't live in Burnaby but rather lives in Coquitlam.
