Following its second nomination meeting in nearly four months, the NPA does not have a full slate of candidates to run for school board. It has six nominees for nine seats.

At the Sept. 13 nomination meeting, Heather Holden and Lakhbir Singh joined the four school board contenders appointed at the NPA’s initial nomination meeting in June. Acclaimed at that first meeting were Ken Denike, Carol Gibson and Clarence Hansen, who are incumbents on the school board, and Sophia Woo, a mental health clinician with Vancouver Coastal Health.

A seventh nominee, Joanne Pulis, was announced before the September meeting “inadvertently” said the party’s campaign co-chair, Paul Wilson. He said she withdrew for personal reasons.
