"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Grace needs Assurance

I would love to see Grace run but she took such a nasty hammering with the last council that I hesitate to even suggest such a thing. I felt so badly because we had voted for her & encouraged others to do so

It's because of what happened in the last term that I think Grace needs to be encouraged.

And  it's about the town's  needs. 

Grace's Dad was a Captain in the  Beaches fire department. 

It's an area with a strong sense of identity. People who grew up there speak of their background with pride.

Grace has  that sense of pride in  public service.  It's not  an idle cliche. We  are  short on identity  and commitment on  Council.

There's  too much cold calculation of  " what's in it for me "

FYI< there's  a referendum  campaign in Scotland now about Separation.

Except for language, it's not unlike the roils and rumbles we hear from  Quebec.

Except the Scots might be a tad more deliberate and have less to lose,

The Irish still want the Northern Territory back.  Kind of like Russians and Crimea .

The  Irish  practiced  terrorism , with funs from Americans, until the mothers decided ...when they had to bury children...they had had enough.

Doesn't really matter where in Europe, passion is never far from the surface .memories
never fade and it  doesn't take much to start an argument and get the blood boiling.

The  new rigeur for blog will not include occasional waspish comments.

We are advised  the trolls  are  being fed  too much .

Perhaps for you it is akin to getting back on the horse. I would vote for Grace but refuse to make her revisit the scene of the crime.
How's that for mixing metaphors ?
