It is do or die time for ECoB.

They are holding a Workshop for anyone who wants to know more about how to get involved in a municipal election or how to run become a candidate.

ECOB logoECoB, the Engaged Citizens of Burlington, is small in size but are punching well above their weight. They will be appearing on Cogeco TV’s The Issue this week and on the 22nd holding the workshop at the Tansley community Centre.

We are about to see how many people are prepared to put themselves forward as candidates in their ward.

This is when the rubber hits the road. We hear of people who plan to run but have yet to make an announcement; we know of people who have made up business cards that describe them as community advocates, we learn of others that say they have a team in place and will announce at a future date,

ECoB workshop posterWe also report on people who have said they will not be running this time – but perhaps in the future.

If there is an event that is going to attract anyone interested in being involved in a campaign – the Workshop is probably that event.
