    I dug this up too. It’s relevant for a point I’m about to make on a new thread.
    Susan is married to lifetime resident Brian Galvao and is a mother of two. She has accumulated a long list of community and humanitarian achievements here in Cambridge including Cambridge WATERS member, Block parent program, Canadian Blood Services Donor, Family Participation in the Kans for Kids program, Pesticide action group, participation in the Foster-adopt program for Waterloo Region, Canadian Cancer society volunteer, Kidney foundation canvasser, Strong Start Reading Program site co-ordinator, Breakfast B4 learning volunteer and an active school volunteer.
    In 2009 Susan was nominated for the Women of Distinction Award. “The award recognizes women who through their own initiative, ability and effort, have made an exemplary achievement in their field; women who are outstanding role models because of their goals and the way they have achieved these goals”(YWCA quote). Susan had the privilege of being nominated in the category of voluntary, community and humanitarian service. This award honours volunteers, who have displayed excellence in providing leadership, and inspiration to others and enhanced the quality of life in the community.
    Susan’s attitude and optimism toward our city is apparent. She possesses a real S.I.M.B.Y. (Start In My Back Yard) attitude and looks forward to the opportunity of representing the peoples need for a better Cambridge.

    Susan’s Goals and Platform:

    Susan supports a ‘S.I.M.B.Y’ attitude: START IN MY BACK YARD promoting:1. A CONSCIENTIOUS USE OF TAX DOLLARS: Less frivolous spending, more accountability. Looking out for the citizen’s money, remembering politicians work for the people, not the other way around.

    Susan sounds like a great person. Pam Wolfe is another great person. Pam is doing great, for the most part, at the municipal level.
    But, I wouldn’t want to see any NDP’er try to run the country, Especially Jack!
    NDPer’s always need to dig deep in other’s pockets. They believe they know how to spend your money better than you do.

    Furthermore, anyone – no matter what their political stripe can do as much for their community working right in their own community. Lots of chances to “make a difference” right at home.
    But, it doesn’t come with a fat pension after 8 years.
    Sounds like we need Susan to stay away from Federal politics where everyone just sits on their asses and bitches at each other. C’mon, Susan is better than that – right?

    Who would you suggest, Lee?

    I would suggest the NDP just kind of dry up and blow away.

    Way to go guy’s, I checked the Times and reporter websites as well as the Record and found no story on the meeting and then came here and there it was, strange….

    I was at the nomination and saw no reporters but i see that the Times has a little blurb and has written it like they were there, even though I don’t know the Citizen(But i do now)it is good to know that someone is objective unlike the conservative leaning Times.

    Bryan, James and I were both there. There was nobody from either The Record or The Times there, so i wonder where The Times got the story.
    Malcolm, i saw you there with your camera. Are you spying for Margaret or are you switching parties?
