      OneCity Vancouver plans to run four candidates for city council in October.

      Last weekend, it nominated incumbent Christine Boyle along with Urban Native Youth Association president, Matthew Norris, Vancouver senior transportation planner Iona Bonamis, and health economist and musician Ian Cromwell.

      In 2018, OneCity only ran two candidates for council.

      OneCity also has a longer slate for school board this time around.

      In 2018, Jennifer Reddy was only one of the party's three candidates to get elected as a school trustee.

      This time, she's joined by four other candidates seeking seats on the school board: Rory Brown, former Vancouver Public Library chair Kyla Epstein, Out In Schools education director Gavin Somers, and Vancouver District Parent Advisory Council member Krista Sigurdson.

      “School board is a top priority for us this election with crucial decisions coming up in the next term that will affect every Vancouverite,” Reddy said in a OneCityVancouver news release. “We need trustees who are willing to stand up for students and fight for the public interest—that’s exactly what our team will do.”

      OneCity Vancouver bypassed the park board election in 2018. This time, it's fielding three candidates who are seeking to become park commissioners. They are Vancouver 2SLGBTQ+ Advisory Committee co-chair Serena Jackson, Squamish Nation councillor Tiyaltelut Kristen Rivers, and environmental lawyer Caitlin Stockwell.
