Mark this date and time! When: Sunday September 23rd, 6:30 - 9:00pm Where: PRCC – Multi Purpose Room This is an exciting year for local politics. Due to district boundary changes we will be getting a new HRM District Councillor, as the Prospect Road area (Goodwood to West Dover) joins Spryfield - Sambro to become the new voting District 11 in HRM. www.halifax. ca/BoundaryReview/Documents/District_11.pdf The ROC has worked closely and successfully with our local municipal councillors and other elected officials since the organization took root in the late 90’s as the Terence Bay & Area C@P Site. The ROC would like to thank outgoing Councillor Reg Rankin for his continuous support and encouragement over the past eight years. The seeds of the idea for a community centre were sown before the Prospect Communities became part of District 22 and Councillor Rankin became our HRM District Councillor, but during his term (2004 -2012) it went from a dream to reality, in large part because of his behind the scenes efforts. We are grateful for his support. The ROC Board wish Councillor Rankin well in the upcoming election as he runs for office as representative for District 12 Timberlea, Beechville, Clayton Park West www.halifax.ca/BoundaryReview/ Documents/District_12.pdf For more information on HRM 2012 Election go to Halifax.ca The ROC Board plan to host a public debate for all candidates in HRM’s upcoming Election (October 20th 2012) for our District 11. At the time of writing this article it is unknown who is running in our area. As soon as that information is released an invitation will be extended to those who put their names forward as a Candidate in District 11. If you are planning to run for the HRM Council position as the representative of District 11, please contact us for more details on the debate. A public debate is a wonderful opportunity for Candidates to meet voters and for voters to ask question. All voting districts in HRM have increased in size this year – from 23 districts to 16 districts throughout the Municipality, so it would be a physical impossibility for Candidates to make it to every door in their area. Be proactive, come out and meet the Candidates, be a part of the debate, and then you will be able to make an informed decision on voting day, October 20th .
