First I would like to issue a challenge to all residents of Morinville – get out and vote on September 20th for a councillor!
The fact that there are six candidates for one councillor position would indicate to me that there is some dissatisfaction and/or unrest with the direction the current council is going to raise the interest level to this degree. If these people are willing to invest the time and money to run for councillor then it is important for as many of us to get out and vote as possible.
Secondly, my husband and I attended the regular Morinville Town Council meeting Aug. 28 and I noted with disappointment that only two of the six candidates running for the September 20th bi-election were in attendance and they were James O’Brien and Sheldon Fingler.
While I recognize that everyone may have had other priorities and it is not always possible to attend these meetings, it indicates to me that the two people who were in attendance are interested in learning the current business for the Town of Morinville!
For me personally, to see the interest shown by these two candidates, makes it easier for me to make a decision come September 20th.
