“Why should I vote for you?” the series that was designed to connect you the voter with your councillor and those who are challenging them, has become the story it was intending to bring forward.
Instead of your incumbent councillors, in Wards 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and now Terry Whitehead in Ward 8 talking to you the voter, the bigger story has been the entitlement at city council thinking they don’t have to come on the public air waves and talk to you.
In the last 48 hours the emails and phone messages from disgruntled voters who have had enough is more than I can answer.
It came to a head last night at the social event of the season, Good Shepherd’s Harvest Dinner at Carmen’s, I was MCing.
Many I had never met were shaking my hand and begging me to keep holding their feet to the fire.
In the crowd of who’s who was one prominent source who, when asked why Councillor Terry Whitehead would confirm and then bail yesterday morning of at the last minute, they said, ‘the other councillors got to him’. Meaning those in the lower wards who had already declined.
Further proof there is way too much block voting that favours a few and denies so many.
They feel they don’t have to answer to anyone.
Ward 9 Friday with a full slate of candidates.

“Why should I vote for you?” Ward 9.
