The Ottawa West-Nepean NDP held its Annual General Meeting Wednesday night at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Gardens. The event was well attended by NDP members from the riding and beyond.
Alex Cullen, our outgoing president, led the proceedings. He reviewed the many things our association has done over the past 15 months since our 2018 AGM, including a number of successful community events, a renewed focus on outreach and fundraising, and the hard work of the federal election campaign.
On Election Day (October 21) our hard work paid off as the NDP increased our vote by 5,000 votes, to reach 19% of votes cast in Ottawa West-Nepean.
Our federal candidate Angella MacEwen and her campaign manager Chandra Pasma were both on hand to talk about this fall's federal campaign and what lessons we learned.
The meeting also heard financial reports from our Federal Financial Agent Dan O'Hagan and Provincial CFO Jim Patterson.
The executive presented thank you gifts to outgoing members Alex Cullen and Laura Lozanski.
The last order of business was to elect a new executive for the upcoming year, giving us a new and reinvigorated executive to help us prepare for a Provincial Election in spring of 2022 and a Federal Election that could happen within a year or two.
