It’s not a rumour: Heather Holden is running for school board

August 28th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I got a lot of response to my efforts to come up with a complete list of council, park and school board candidates for all the parties, which I posted last night (and am now correcting, thanks to all the input). Among the messages I got back, Heather Holden emailed to let me know that she has been approved by the Non-Partisan Association vetting committee to run for school board. So she’s on her way. She described herself as a “former geography professor,” although I believe there’s a bit more on her resume than that. Holden is a park-board commissioner this term. She used to work at the Vancouver Aquarium, but I see from my friend Google that she is now a “wealth advisor” with Scotia McLeod.

    Thank you for posting this info, ’cause now I know about it.

    Heather Holden will make an excellent Vancouver School Board Member. I have had the occassion to meet Heather a few times as a Park Board Commissioner and at community events and she seems quite dedicated to her position and to the general welfare of the people of Vancouver. She seems very level headed and not full of herself like many public servants.

    I vote Heather Holden for Vancouver School Board.
