Please submit your fully costed and independently verified election
manifesto.  I want to know what you are going to do if you should get a
seat on the KC. ( Free stickers and alcohol are good to sway my vote! )

Joking aside, other members of the community would like to know bit more
about the folks who represent us on the Council.  Tell us a bit about what
makes you tick, what you currently do in the community, plans for the
future and why we should vote for you :)
