The sky is blue, the Earth is round and Burkman is running for re-election

In news that will surprise absolutely nobody, Vancouver City Councilor Jack Burkman will run for re-election this year. Nobody has stepped up to challenge Burkman, while the other two councilors up for re-election, Jeanne Stewart and Jeanne Harris, have drawn opponents. (And nobody has come forward to challenge Mayor Tim Leavitt).

While  Burkman hasn’t made a public announcement, this is public enough for me. I was going through council emails when I came across this Facebook message from Burkman to two supporters. He wrote that he wants a list of endorsements before he makes a public announcement.

Filing week is May 13-17.
