Election Caution

I sent the following letter to the local newspapers. I don't know if it will be published, but one of the things that has been bugging me lately is candidates that go into the election promising things that can't be delivered. I wish people would stop believing their nonsense.

Dear Editor,

With the municipal elections around the corner, many people will put their name in the hat to run for council. While it’s great to see people involved in local politics, when it comes time to put an “X” on the ballet we should be electing people that will make a positive impact in our community. Running for council is not an easy task and we should be voting for outstanding members of our community that are active in making our neighbourhoods better. It is easy to be swept away by candidates, both new and incumbent, that promise lower taxes, improved service, and sun in the winter. We need to be voting for people that have a vision for our community that is grounded in reality.
