By Terry Mullen - Candidate for UNA Elected Resident Director
The final day for voting to fill the three vacant positions on the UNA Board is November 1st, the date of the UNA AGM.
I am running for one of those positions. The greatest obstacle for candidates to overcome in “campaigning” is that of communicating with the electorate, that is, the residents. The UNA has refused to make available to candidates the email addresses of residents, citing considerations of privacy. Fair enough, I suppose, though the UNA has that information and regularly uses it.
Fortunately John Tompkins, the editor of The Campus Resident, has been proactive in providing candidates a forum. You may have read the candidate profiles in the September edition and the question and answer section in the October edition which came out yesterday. Indeed, you may also have read my article, “We Shape Our Buildings and Thereafter They Shape Us”, published in the August edition, in which I discuss my concerns in regard to the Stadium Road Neighbourhood project.
I invite you to read the attached flyer. It’s brief (mercifully, you might well say) but it sets out what I see as the more important issues that are within the jurisdiction of the UNA.
