Symi election 2019
Before we get to the regular Symi Saturday Photos, here are two news items that will be of interest to people living on the island and visitors alike. The election of a new mayor and council is due to take place in a few months, and the process has already started. I’ve been told that three candidates are running this year (though I don’t know all the details yet). One of the candidates, Elias, has arranged a meeting with non-Greek nationals living on the island, so everyone has a chance to let their views be known and ask questions. This meeting will take place on Monday 25th February at 7.30 pm at the Sunrise Café, Horio. It will be a chaired meeting, and everyone is welcome to attend.
Also, for those who want to vote in the election who haven’t yet registered, you have until March 28th to do so. You need to do this at the town hall. It’s been so long since I registered I can’t remember what you need to take, but go and visit the KEP office (downstairs at the town hall building, front, door on the left), and ask there. After March 28th… who knows? This could be the last chance for British people to register. You will need to have your residency card in place, but if you’ve been living on Symi for more than three months, you should have done this by now anyway.
Okay, and now some recent and older, random photos.
