elect ben henderson!

Ben Henderson, Edmonton City Council candidate for Ward 4, is having a BBQ fundraiser next weekend.

Ben came very close to being elected in 2004 (coming within striking distance of defeating incumbent-Councillor Jane Batty. Making Ward 4 one of the closest races in the 2004 Edmonton City Council election).

The Elect Ben campaign will be launched with the Second Annual First BBQ of the Season to be held Sunday April 29th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Rossdale Community Hall, 10135 – 96 Avenue. Food and drinks will be provided. There will be door prizes, a silent auction, and a 50-50 draw.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by phoning 428-1913, sending an e-mail to, or at the door.

How can you be against a woman candidate? Are you sexist? You are so anti-women. You don't want any women in politics do you. You're not the left-wing socialist I thought you were.

Michael Phair announced today that he is not running for re-election. that leaves one open seat in Ward 4! Let's hope Ben gets elected!

If if were anyone but Emil, I'd assume he's joking. Ben is a better candidate than Batty, that's all there is to it.

Dammit, Michael Phair is one of the lone voices of sanity on council. That's going to be a huge loss.

PS: Vargas is a ridiculous man.

"ben's wife does not belong in politics, so i wont vote for him."

I guess that means the voters in Edmonton Centre have disagreed with you since 1997. Laurie is a quality MLA and both her and Ben will be receiving my votes again in the next elections.
