75 Days running

I'm Guy Heywood and I'm running for Mayor in the City of North Vancouver. I need your help to mount an effective campaign for real, positive change and transparency in the City of North Vancouver. 

When I ran for School Board and Council, I always paid for my own campaigns.  I've never taken donations from developers, corporations or unions even when it was legal to do so. 

The new rules governing election finance that ban corporate and union donations also limit the amount an individual can donate to their own campaign.  To mount an effective campaign and be successful on October 20th, I need the help of my fellow citizens. 

How much does a campaign for Mayor cost? In the 2014 election our Mayor spent $100,000 on his campaign, most of which came from corporations and unions that deal with the City.  His challenger spent over $70,000 of his own money.  The new rules cap the amount that can be spent on a campaign for Mayor in the City at $36,000.  I have estimated that I need to spend about $27,000 on my campaign for Mayor, which is still less than what the preferred successor of the Mayor spent on her campaign for Council in 2014.

So please consider donating to my campaign.  

This will be an interesting election. The rules have changed. Many incumbents are not running.  I sense people are realizing local government has the biggest impact on their day to day life and local elections are a leading indicator of the quality of our democracy. 

If you don't vote in the advance polls that start on October 10th, please vote on October 20th. 

Thank you.
