Heard on the streets...stop the presses...
The one from OZ will also be a candidate in the next election.
Public opinion says he has the votes to get elected
Here's another blast from the past.
When the election is over, people expect those elected to get down to work together taking care of town business.
Overt politics are not expected to rear its ugly head until the next election, commonly called "the silly season"
I call it a celebration of Rights and Freedoms.
The term is not halfway over. Community discussion about the what, when, how and why, is certainly likely to ebb and flo depending on the hot topic of the moment.
That the one from Oz is likely to win the most votes to take the Mayor's chair in an election 2.5 years away is sheer nincompoopery.
I am receiving the comment. I don't even know for sure who is the one from Oz . I would have to go back and research comments to find out. I am not going to do that.
I don't even know what comment was made to the Adam, Noah and that Lot post at 12.44, on what day and I'm not going to seek that out either.
The community expects Council to do what they undertook to do in a previous election and that is commit themselves to the town's best interest from their individual perspectives.
When the term is over, the electorate , one vote at a time, will make a judgement about who has done a half decent job and deserves another term.
Having said that, judgement is being formed. It is a work in progress.
Councillors need to apply themselves to the job at hand.
Making calculated guesses and decisions that pander to special interest groups at the expense of community interest is never a good idea.
It's the common and jaded public expectation. It's what special interest groups count on.
It's the task of a conscientious politician to prove otherwise.
That's what generates respect.
All that requires is dogged determination.
