Now that I’ve endorsed Colleen Hardwick Nystedt for City Councillor for the upcoming election, I’ve been contacted by numerous political candidates (and their supporters). While we have given them free reign in the comments section of this blog, we’ve chosen not to highlight anyone unless they are actually from Kitsilano. The following is not an endorsement, but just an FYI:
Mel Lehan for the Vancouver Park Board – Mel moved to Kits in 1951 and went to General Gordon Elementary, Kits High School and UBC. He pitched a no-hitter for the Kits High baseball team and bought his first bicycle at Ace Cycles. His community activites include co-founding the Kitsilano Residents Association and St. James Community Square and serving on the boards of Kits House, Kits Community Centre and the Kitsilano Chamber of Commerce. We also owe Mel for his part in having the ‘Welcome to Kitsilano’ log erected at the entrance to Kits at the end of the Burrard Bridge. Now if I can only convince him to add .ca to the end of that log!
