Coming Right Up: Officer Elections for the Cap Hill Community Council

A few words before the announcement:

I encourage everyone to take part in this year's election. It will be the second for the newly re-formed CHCC, making it a hugely important transition for the Council. Justin Carder is stepping down from the position of President, the Secretary position is presently empty, and there are three new At-Large positions. This means there's even more room than usual for new blood to take up leadership in the Council. So if you love your neighborhood, have the patience to deal with process, and like talking to your neighbors about parks and crosswalks, please consider becoming a candidate in this year's election.

An explanation/ disclaimer - I won't be doing much coverage on the election after this cuz I'll be running in it (Yay - Jen for Prez!). You'll just have to turn to CHS blog for all your juicy super-local election coverage.
