Friends and supporters,
Over the past several months, I have had the incredible privilege of meeting Vancouverites of all walks of life who are passionate about their city. The level of civic engagement has been inspiring and I have been thrilled to have had the opportunity to share my ideas on how to improve Vancouver.
After departing the NPA, many people reached out and encouraged me to continue to run either as an independent or with another party. This support means a great deal to me. I am honoured so many people expressed confidence in myself and the ideas I campaigned on.
However due to changing personal circumstances, and after great consideration I have decided I will not be seeking a nomination with YES Vancouver. I believe I have much to contribute to this city and towards addressing Vancouver’s multiple challenges, however my contributions will not be taking the form of seeking public office in the 2018 election. YES Vancouver has my full support and I will continue to work towards electing YES’ excellent team of candidates.
A deep, heartfelt thank you to all my supporters.
Scott de Lange Boom
