About this blog – full disclosure – this is a blog a blog created by one of the candidates.
My name is John Richardson and I am one of the candidates in Ward 29. One of my goals in this campaign is to generate interest in this election. For most people their local government is more important than the provincial and federal governments. Yet, the voter turnout is horrible. Please get out and vote! Democracy is great, but it does require you to take the responsibility of voting.
Know your candidates in ward 29 – get interested!
Every candidate has his/her own blog or site. But, there should be at least one site where you can see who all your candidates are at a glance. Obviously I hope that you vote for me – yes that is a plug. The residents in Ward 29 are fortunate to enough to have a number of fine candidates. One of the ways to help you get interested in this election is to know who your candidates are.
If you are one of the candidates in Ward 29 – I hope that you will contribute to the discussion. Please comment on any posts. I would be happy to have you post on this blog too. If we are able to increase the voter turnout rate in Ward 29 – then regardless of who gets the largest number of votes – we will all be winners!
