Because we are trying to encourage potential candidates to run. If we can show them that we have a pool of votes and money available to them then this may give them the confidence to declare and run.
When we have accumulated sufficent funds we will ask donors to vote among ourselves to support one candidate. Each donor can vote once and cannot change their vote. The candidate with the majority of votes receives the funds and our non-binding support for election day. Of course on municipal election day you can vote however you want.
Note: Only Donors are allowed to Vote.
You can get a refund of your donations at any time before our internal voting starts.

Initially "we" is, Robin Sukhu. As people register and donate the definition of "we" includes all the donors. The common thread that binds us into a "we" is our shared values and the desire for a Progressive Mayor. Note: you can contact Robin by clicking on Contact in the menu at the top of this page.
The Donor section of the site provides you a form to ask a question of the candidates. To access the Donor section of the site you must first Register (no donation is required).
