Candidates will be free to communicate with and engage the GOSH community in any way they feel is appropriate, however, all candidates will be expected to participate in specific common activities, including:

  1. Posting of candidate position statements: Candidates will be asked to draft a short position statement, indicating why they are running for Community Council, their priorities for the community, and what they hope to achieve, along with a short bio. A basic template will be provided to candidates in order to encourage comparability of position statements. Position statements will be posted to a designated category on the GOSH forum, with community questions and comments enabled so that community members can offer feedback and pose questions. These statements do not have to be in English.

  2. Community meeting(s) with candidates: Community meetings (or town halls) will be scheduled and announced to allow live discussion between community members and candidates.

Just a reminder that the deadline for voter registration is May 17th. You can register to vote using the following link: GOSH 2021 Community Council Election Registration 1
