DLANC Candidates Set: Come Vote, But Not for Me

By Eric Richardson
Published: Friday, August 18, 2006, at 02:26PM

Wednesday marked the last day for candidates to file their paperwork and run in DLANC's upcoming election (September 12th). The official list of verified candidates is now set and public. Monday, August 21st, marks the last day to turn in absentee voter requests so if you would enjoy voting from your home or office rather than making it to Macy's Plaza you best get that in. The form can be found on the DLANC website as a PDF. I'd encourage anyone who is a stakeholder in Downtown to make plans to turn out and vote.

But don't come out to vote for me. Yes, I am running (for the Area-Wide Resident Artist seat) but I'm unopposed and write-in candidates aren't allowed. So don't waste a vote on me -- go place your mark on one of the disputed contests instead. 15 of DLANC's 27 seats have a single candidate. That includes all eight of the business seats. But that means twelve seats are up for grabs. Here are the races you should be paying attention to. I'll list the unopposed seats after the jump.

I'll be glad to post statements from any candidates who send them to me. Heck, I guess that way I can find out who reads the site.

Names that are links point to candidate statements that have been sent to me and have run on the site.
