Yesterday, Public Eye received an email invitation from Esquimalt councillor Maurine Karagianis to join her for coffee and "an important announcement." Gee...could that be an important announcement similar to the one Victoria city councillor Rob Fleming made? Is Ms. Karagianis going to tell us she's running for the provincial New Democrat nomination in Esquimalt-Metchosin (news we reported almost two months ago)? We'll just have to wait until Thursday to find out. The following is a copy of that invitation.
