Elizabeth Ball is another NPA councilor whose Vancouver Courier ads have no reference to Ladner.
NPA councilor Kim Capri has no reference to Ladner on the home page of her own website.
NPA school board nominee Heather Holden and NPA trustee Ken Denike don't mention Ladner in their ads either.
But give credit to the NPA's Michael Geller - who knows that you run as a team and features Peter Ladner's name prominently in his own ads.
It has to be asked whether the overthrow of NPA Mayor Sam Sullivan by Ladner in a divisive nomination battle has left its scars still.
All incumbent NPA councilors and most NPA school trustees and park board commissioners supported Sullivan's losing campaign. Is there some payback aimed at Peter?
But even NPA Park Board chair Ian Robertson is running ads without Ladner, as is NPA Park Board commissioner Marty Zlotnick - no friend of Sullivan.
Overall one gets the impression the NPA campaign is a well-heeled but hardly well-oiled machine when prominent candidates can't be bothered to even mention the guy who would be their mayor if elected.
By the way, Vision Vancouver candidate Geoff Meggs has radio ads promoting his candidacy and other candidates have print ads - they all mention mayoral candidate Gregor Robertson.
