APAC: Candidate Endorsements Ottawa Municipal Election 2022
Posted October 6, 2022
The ACORN Political Action Commitee (APAC) is an ACORN sister organization made up of ACORN members who volunteer to evaluate candidates and support them during elections.
After almost 2 months of surveying candidates on the Agenda for Change Platform which captures many issues such as affordable & livable housing, municipal broadband, transit, childcare, good jobs, climate change, social services and more, nearly 50 ACORN members joined the APAC to make their recommendations for candidate endorsements.
