Here we are folks. The day before the election.  Tomorrow, we will vote for our Trustees, Mayor and Councillors.

I have received so much encouragement from so many people…. got a call the other night that gave me the impetus to stay the course for a few hours more.

Here are the brass tacks: I will do as I say. I will listen. And I will respond.

The past few months have been really enjoyable. So many great folks in this community. So many great ideas.

I ask for the honour of your vote on Monday and I will put these great ideas into motion.


And yes, I know I look goofy below… it gets better.

Trustee Brockington endorses John Marshall for Ottawa Carleton District School Board Zone 6 Trustee.
Public School Board Trustee Riley Brockington offered his endorsement on Wednesday to newcomer John Marshall for Zone 6 Trustee (Alta Vista and Rideau/Rockcliffe).
“Mr. Marshall has consistently shown both through his service to his community and throughout his campaign that he has the skills and enthusiasm necessary to be a strong voice for the Zone 6 community at the Board table. I am confident that his election would mean a truly representative and responsive voice for parents and other constituents in Alta Vista and Rideau/Rockcliffe.” Brockington announced on Wednesday.
Marshall responded that “I am very pleased and honoured to receive this endorsement. Trustee Brockington has a long history of service to the Board and his community and his confidence in me is very encouraging. If the voters of Zone 6 see fit to elect me on October 25th, I look forward to proving myself worthy of his endorsement.”

Remember to bring ID!

I’m starting to get some good feedback about my campaign.

People seem to actually like the idea that I’m running in Zone 6. Go figger.

I guess they want to have a Trustee who will get back to them if they have an issue with their school or the Board. Or maybe it’s because they know that a new face means new ideas on how to tackle the Board’s problems. Or maybe they like my goatee.

I don’t know. But I and my team have yet to hear anything negative. Even the guy with the incumbent’s lawn sign out front took a card and said he’d read it!

Some quotes at the door, on Twitter or by email:

Just was delivered your card this afternoon.

Count on my vote.  I appreciate your desire to bring collaboration and responsiveness to our public school system.

I think it’s great that you’re doing this – don’t know how you find the time but I am glad to see a good person in the running!!

WOW! What a great change it would be to have someone who returns emails!

All the best on the campaign John!

The current Trustee seems to have lost her interest. So it’s great that you’re doing this!

Shucks (blush). Thanks all.
