So who out there is planning to run and for which board?
Lennie Jarratt December 17, 2012 at 03:46 PM
You can get a list from each board after people file. Most of the filings will happen first thing this morning.

Thanks Lennie. I am aware of that. Just trying to drum up some conversation!

Ray Millington, Keith Surroz and Karen Weinert need to expire in 2013.

I'm guessing there will be plenty of conversation once the filings happen.
