Over the last six years, this blog has been an excellent tool for reaching out to those Yellowknifers who are eager for a bit more detail on City Council issues than is typically found in the newspaper or on Facebook. I know that sometimes I drone on in my posts, and it always amazes me to find out that people have stuck through to the end. I would like to sincerely thank all of you who have been following along, whether just for the last few posts or since this started out as a "pro-Yellowknife" blog back in 2010, prior to my first term on Council.
But all things must come to an end. With my mayoral campaign about to get underway, I need a more modern tool to spread the word, so as of September 5th I will cease to post on this blog and will begin posting at adrianbell.ca. If my website helpers are successful in exporting all my old posts to the new site then I'll shut this down completely, but if not I'll leave it up so that aspiring City Councillors can use it as a source of information.
As a final note, if you are reading this post and if you have been following this blog, that probably means you care a lot about our community. Not everyone has time in their lives to run for Council, but there are many other ways to be engaged and to contribute to making our city a great place to live. During my campaign I'm hoping to bring together as many such people as possible, and to come out the other end with dozens of energized Yellowknifers who are ready to step up and get involved in different ways. If that sounds like something you could get excited about, please sign up through my campaign website's landing page. I look forward to working with you on our common objective of helping Yellowknife achieve its full potential.
Thanks again for following along, and I hope to see you all starting September 5th at the new site - adrianbell.ca
