I still remember fondly the first computer ever to find its way into the family home. The Apple IIe was magic, allowing these clumsy finger to type badly, then delete the virtual mistakes.
It surprises me a little to realize I have been friends with Gary Gladstone for over half my life. In the almost thirty years I have know him, he has been passionately involved in working to make this part of Canada a better place. You may know him from his active efforts in community affairs, charitable fundraising and political activity. Or you might just know him as a friendly guy you met in the neighbourhood.
However you know him, you have likely share my conclusion – Gary has your back.
Below, you will see Gary's announcement that he is seeking the Presidency of the Beverley Glen Ratepayers Association. This is not an easy decision for him or his wife, Melanie. It means more work and more time spent on community affairs. He is doing this because he can make a difference.
So read the announcement below. If you live in the area, make sure to put 6:30pm, Thursday, February 10, 2011 in your calendar and make your way to cast a vote for Gary Gladstone.
I am pleased to announce that I am seeking the Presidency of the Beverley Glen Ratepayers Association.
As an involved member in the community, I will make sure our voice is heard with respect to traffic infiltration, density, transit and overall good community life.
I will work with residents, community leaders, City officials (elected and unelected) representing and being the key voice of our community.
The election will take place on Thursday February 10 at 6:30 p.m. at Garnett A. Williams Community Centre, Meeting Room 2.
