Edmonton’s municipal election is a ways away (not until October), but already there’s some exciting news — aside from Mandel announcing he’ll seek a third term.
I received the following release in my inbox this morning:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 5, 2010
COMMUNITY ADVOCATE MICHAEL JANZ RUNNING FOR SCHOOL BOARD
EDMONTON – This morning, Michael Janz confirmed his intention to run for Edmonton Public School Board trustee in Ward F.
“I am running for trustee because I believe this election matters to every Edmontonian,” explained Michael. “The decisions we make about our schools profoundly impact the communities we live in today and our collective efforts to build a better Edmonton tomorrow.”
The community will have the opportunity to meet Michael at his Kickoff BBQ on May 30th, 2010, from 2:00 pm to 5:00pm, at the McKernan Community Hall (11341 – 78 Avenue), with a media address at 3:30 pm. Michael will also be knocking on doors in Ward F during the summer and throughout September and October.
Michael Janz is the current Marketing Director for the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues, and has previously worked as a researcher for the Public School Boards’ Association of Alberta. He was previously elected President of the University of Alberta Students’ Union in 2007.

I consider Michael to be a good friend, and wish him all the best in his pursuit of public office. I look forward to hearing his ideas. And maybe I’ll even see some of you at the kick-off BBQ!
