Stephan Vodine seeks Vision Nomination

UBC student seeks Vision nomination

The youngest politician ever elected to the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school board is eyeing a trustee seat in Vancouver this fall.

Stepan Vdovine, a political science student at UBC, plans to run for a Vision Vancouver nomination. He sits on the party’s education committee.

The 23-year-old, who has a Russian and German background, has lived in Canada for almost 10 years. He speaks three languages and graduated from Thomas Haney secondary in Maple Ridge, but Vancouver has been his home for nearly two years. He works for Capers.

The first step in making it to a seat at the Vancouver Board of Education table is getting a Vision Vancouver nomination to represent VV in the November election.

Vision Vancouver has set its nomination contest date for September 20. To be eligible to vote for nominees, Vancouver citizens must be Vision Vancouver members in good standing for at least 30 days prior to the September 20 vote.
