Dubgee launches 2011 mayoral campaign
Local Musician Dubgee (a.k.a. Harley Jaimes Rose) is excited to announce that he will be running for Mayor of Vancouver in the November 2011 municipal election. He is a single dad and youth mentor from East Vancouver. He will be running as an independent with a focus on issues of working class citizens. His goal is to raise awareness of civic issues and the process of running a campaign among large parties who are heavily funded.
As Dubgee learns about running a campaign he would like to share his experience through his youth work and music. He is looking forward to meeting with community groups and individuals to learn the different perspectives that make up the city. Harley believes that to have a well functioning democracy, participation is paramount and citizens need to be both educated and listened to on issues that will directly affect them.
