Colwood citizens need to get out the vote

It’s election time in Colwood again. For those of you who make up the 73 per cent of eligible voters who did not vote in 2008, I say

It’s election time in Colwood again.  For those of you who make up the 73 per cent of eligible voters who did not vote in 2008, I say, “you can’t afford not to vote” this time. You need to become engaged with your community and the issues.

We desperately need new, positive, respectful leadership from all our candidates in these tough economic times.

I challenge you to educate yourself about the candidates running this year especially after the deliberate confusion caused by the candidates who chose to have another Colwood all-candidates meeting on the same night and at the same time as the one at the Church of the Advent.

We only need six of the 10 candidates running for city council, but you don’t have to vote for six, vote strategically for the one or two you feel strongly for. Talk with your friends and neighbours and make an informed decision.

There are so many issues that we feel powerless to change, so take your one opportunity to make a difference and vote Nov. 19. Let’s take Colwood into the future with dedicated councillors who will show up at meetings.
