Okay, there is simply no accounting for my previous post, and for that I apologize. It doesn’t make that much sense, I know. Just chalk it up to election overexposure. Too many burger polls at Burger Heaven.
But I had to post again after reading so many of the comments, especially those from Poli-Sigh and Anonymous in exchange with the City Communications Manager and both Briana and Will (co-editors of the blog) on this post and others. Can I just say how great it is to see people getting into discussions like these? I know when Will and Briana approached me to help them write for this blog, I was initially a little skeptical about it but it’s neat to see the traffic increase and the types of discussions that are being started in the comments.
I feel like I did when the Orange Room first opened (sigh) – perhaps there really are people out there in our fair city who really care about what happens to it and have ideas about how to make it the best it can be! I’m struck (again) by the thought I have everytime we have a municipal election – especially in a city as small as New West – though we are voting for leaders for our city, this does not remove our responsibility to contribute our time, our ideas, and our energy to make it the city we want!
So, dear readers – what do you want to see happen in our Royal City?
