Post Best kept secret

The Green Party has a federal candidate for the riding of Bruce Grey Owen Sound.
Allenford lawyer Chris Albinati was acclaimed at a nomination meeting yesterday.
The 30 year old married father of 2  was scheduled to attend a rally today with area candidates in Guelph.

It is unknown why the Executive, Chris, and the rest of the Media have not made the local members and the public aware of this appointment after the vote Sunday. I hope we will see full details on these pages in the very near future.

EDIT
More information at http://owensoundhub.org/news/1307-green-party-selects-chris-albinati.html

Having spend many hours creating and maintaining this site I am disappointed that our Candidate Chris Albinati and his campaign manager has not made more use of the resources here to communicate with the local Green Party members and the public. Having taken the time to ensure that our CEO is fully conversant with how to post both front page items and to send newsletters I wonder why there has been no information as to Chris's campaign activities available. I do realize that they have received almost no practical support from members, but then it hard to motivate members if they dont know what is going on and there seems little interest by the local registered members in even discussing issues as shown by the zero postings on our member forum here.
I think we all realize that Chris is not going to win in this riding and his campaign is therefore an effort to bring some attention to green values and to get some name recognition for next time around when we hope a more equitable election process will be in place. I did see a very good letter from Chris in The Owen Sound Hub (http://owensoundhub.org/election-2015/1447-green-s-chris-albinati-responds-to-miller-s-letter.html) recently and whilst I am not sure how many folks view that on line news and views resource I encourage him to continue to use it. BUT come on guys, we have our own web site, our own face book page (which has seen an occasional post), this forum AND a news letter application that reaches over 500 'supporters' , lets use ALL methods available to get the word out.
