Civic Campaign Literature
I normally vote in all elections, but I did not vote in the 2014-11-15 Victoria civic election because the candidates offered me nothing but bullshit in the campaign literature.
When I vote in a civic election, there are a great many candidates I am not familiar with. The main thing I want to know about them is will they vote the way I would in council? However, in their campaign literature, they rarely give me any clues on how they will vote. They tell me unhelpful vague BS like:
- passion for serving people
- focus on the future
- dependable leadership
- working hard today for a better tomorrow
- A large picture of a relative’s wedding showing her extended family
- truly committed to our community
- vibrant Victoria
- School trustees have a $200 million budget.
About the only brochure that told me anything about the candidate’s platform said:
