OneCity and City Council candidate RJ Aquino are on a roll.
On Monday we released our full list of donations and challenged the other Vancouver political parties to publicly release all of their donations before we vote on Nov. 15 and on an annual basis. We believe in campaign finance reform and putting residents and neighbourhoods back at the centre of decision making at City Hall — and we're backing that up with our actions.
In the past few hours, some very special people in our city have publicly stated they are saving one vote for RJ Aquino: author and comedian Charlie Demers, Sharon Gregson of the B.C. Coalition of Child Care Advocates, and Vancouver City Planning Commissioner Brandon Yan.
And there will be many more. Over the next week, we're going be talking about concrete ways Vancouver can create and support a sustainable economy, beginning with paying the people who work here a Living Wage. Plus we have a few special surprises in store that are going to get people talking, thinking, and voting for a fresh, new voice on City Council in RJ Aquino.
Advance voting starts today and runs until Wednesday (excluding Nov. 11) from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. so beat the rush and vote early when you vote Aquino. We're disappointed the City has not responded to our call to address the shameful lack of advance voting places on the East Side of our city, but there will be shuttle buses starting Friday.
