Catherine Wilkinson and Dan King are the two newest tenants to be recommended to the City for nomination to the Toronto Community Housing Board of Directors. Linda Coltman and Eva Tavares are the alternates. The four were selected by Tenant Representatives in a vote held on October 18.
The process to select the new tenant board members began earlier this year. Over 60 tenants completed applications and 45 of them met the basic eligibility criteria. A short-list of eight was chosen based on qualifications and a two-phase review process. The final eight candidates made themselves known to Tenant Rep voters at four "Meet the Candidate" meetings held in October across the city.
The four nominees - Catherine Wilkinson, Dan King, and alternates Linda Coltman and Eva Tavares - will be put forward to City Council for approval before the end of the year.
If approved by City Council, Catherine Wilkinson and Dan King will be the next Tenant Board Directors. Their term lasts four years.
