Candidates will be free to communicate with and engage the GOSH community in any way they feel is appropriate. However, all candidates are expected to participate in specific common activities, including posting candidate position statements on the GOSH Forum and participating in a community meeting. Please note that all candidates must post a candidate statement on the forum (failure to do so results in disqualification) and are expected to attend at least one community meeting.
- 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 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.
- Community meeting with candidates: Two community meetings are scheduled to allow live discussion between community members and candidates.
Upcoming community meetings with candidates
Two community meetings have been scheduled to allow live discussion between community members and candidates. They will take place on the following dates and times:
Candidate statements will be recorded and posted on Youtube so that the community members who can’t attend can still watch your statement. These meetings are also available on the GOSH Calendar.
Just a reminder that the deadline for voter registration is August 28th. Register to vote here!
