Happy New Year! The opening of 2013 brings us new starts, new opportunities, and two new endorsements for Scott Payne as SumOfUs.org‘s Canadian Campaign Manager.
Of Payne, McLeod said, “I have known Scott for many years now, though we have never met in person. There have been emails, tweets, Facebook messages, website comments, and Skype calls. His passion for doing good works cannot be ignored.”
McLeod is a fellow at the Canadian Council for Democracy and a well-known and respected Canadian blogger whose writing has appeared at, The Politic, the Commons, The League of Ordinary Gentlemen, and Examiner.com.
Adding to his relationship with Payne, McLeod noted, “Better still, Scott has the drive that pushes that passion forward. It seems to me that Scott is just the type of person to be the Canadian Campaign Manager for SumOfUs.”
Also lending her support to Payne’s bid, political and student activist Natalie Bocking commented, “Scott Payne was one of the first non-partisan political organizers / leaders that I met as a young activist in 2006. As a first year university student who wanted to get involved with the fight against tuition fees, Scott’s charisma and inclusive leadership style was inspiring to me.”
“One of the coolest things about doing meaningful work is all of the amazing people you meet and networks you build,” said Payne. “I’m humbled by Jonathan and Natalie’s words of support, richer for having them in my life, and know that with good people like them out there the world really can change for the better.”
