5 North Cowichan councillor hopefuls have formed what they’re calling a working alliance; the North Cowichan Team for Accountable Governance.

TEAM is an acronym for Taxes, Environment, Accountable government and Managed development.

Nick Caumanns is one of the candidates involved.

Caumans says he, Jagtar Mann, Joyce Behnsen, Laurie Thompson, and Jim Fane will continue to run separate campaigns but are planning things like a joint website.
