Coquitlam Port Moody Mayor Race 2014

We’re two months away from the 2014 Civic Election. Always a fun time for me and maybe around 20% of you. It’s early days, but we’re already gearing up for some interesting races. In Coquitlam former mayor and longtime councillor Lou Sekora is going to run for mayor against Richard Stewart. I for one can’t wait for the all-candidates meetings.

In Port Moody former City Manager Gaetan Royer has announced he will take on incumbent Mike Clay for the big chair. This brings the possibility of having two Royers on council, although Zoe Royer has not announced whether she will seek re-election for her council seat.

The Coquitlam Now has also broken out the first of what will be many “get out and vote” editorials. I’m sure you’ll get one or two from me leading up to November 15th.

One thing that will change a lot over the next couple years in the Tri-Cities is transit service. Port Moody council are formulating their pitch to Translink on transit plans over the next 10 years.

Place Des Arts is hosting Palette…eat, paint, create! on Saturday night. Guests will unleash their inner artist as they paint a canvas and enjoy tapas and perhaps a glass of wine in a relaxed and social environment. You can get tickets online at Brown Paper Tickets.

A Coquitlam magician has won a mentalism medal at the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians. And I know what you’re thinking, yes, he does already know your Facebook password.

The City of Coquitlam is doing a feedback roadshow on the new Mundy Park Forest Management Plan. They are having an information session this Saturday from 12-7pm at the Poirier Sport & Leisure Complex.

Miss604 has done a piece on September in Vancouver History. Lots of cool little tidbits.

Finally, the web show Metro Vancouver Close Up takes a look at the Tri-Cities.
