Ask for answers, not promises, from civic election candidates

Election time is approaching. I strongly encourage all to take a good look at the candidates when you mark your ballot. Don’t judge by race, gender, or marital status. I say this as I recently had a telephone interview on the candidates in the election and I was asked if I would vote for a coloured person, divorced, etc. Wow. What has this to do with what the candidate will do for the people?

Don’t look at the cover until you have read the book. Ask questions. Get answers, not promises. Address issues that affect all the people, not just the big guys.

Everyone is well aware of the issues: crime, illegal suites, and illegal construction. Presently these are not being addressed so maybe give the new faces and new plans a chance. It can’t be any worse than it already is.
