Municipal workshop this week

Mon Aug 14, 2006 Miss Vicky 

Family Services Ottawa will be holding a workshop this Thursday, August 17, about the upcoming municipal election. It's taking place at FSO's offices, 312 Parkdale, from 6-8pm. Here's the notice I received:

FSFO is working with Imagine Ottawa to create opportunities for people to participate - meaningfully - in this fall's municipal elections. We've created an issues toolkit that outlines some of the things that people may want to know in order to decide how to vote in November.

On August 17, we're hosting a workshop on the municipal election. People will get a copy of the toolkit, get to meet some of the people who are running for city council in Ward 15 - Shawn Little, Vicky Smallman, Daniel Narwa and Joan Spice have already confirmed their attendance. Come on out and ask lots of questions. Regardless of what ward you live in this information session will be meaningful and clarify the importance of participating in municipal politics!!


They are asking folks to RSVP by Wednesday, August 16 as they'll have refreshments and need to make sure there are enough seats. You can RSVP by calling 613-725-3601 ext.107

The workshop, called "Political Change Starts at the Local Level: Influencing Municipalities &The 2006 Municipal Election", will cover how municipal government works, how citizens can make changes and make Ottawa a better place to live. It's being organized in conjunction with Imagine Ottawa, an ongoing series of workshops, discussions and events about the future of our city.
