There will be a “Meet the Candidate” forum taking place at the beginning of the next District Council Meeting on July 15 @ 9:30am-12:30am. To have any questions for the candidates asked at this forum, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 14.
Please find applications and platform statements of our two candidates below:
Ron Weston, St. Joan of Arc
“The Essential elements of the society of St. Vincent de Paul are spirituality, friendship, and service” From Statute 1: The Rule. I believe in SVdP’s national program to be ‘subservient leaders.’ As a leader I would be of service to conferences and to the poor.”
Ron Costanzo, St. Bonaventure
“I am closest to God when I am in community and see a direct connection being in that community when involved with others in our Vincentian work.”
