Steve Forseth's Candidacy for WL City Council (2nd Run) (Updated)

In what should not be an unexcepted move on my part - today, I'm announcing my 2nd run for a seat on Williams Lake City Council.  I first ran for WL Council in 2005 and finishing 11th out of 14 candidates with 572 votes.  I also ran in 2008 in the Cariboo Regional District against former Area 'F' Director Duncan Barnett and finished last in a 3 way race.  I have interviews set up with the Williams Lake Tribune, Cariboo Advisor and The Rush later today.  My interview with the Rush, I'm told, may play late in the afternoon and will play Wednesday am.  My interview with the Advisor may run Wednesday (if not - it'll be the following Wednesday) and my interview with the Tribune should run in this Thursday's paper

Also - see the video that Welcome to Williams Lake did announcing my 2nd run to WL City Council.  See that video here, with related information here
