CAN­DI­DATES UN­KNOWN

Stirling Times - - Opinion - SI­MON WHEELER, Scar­bor­ough.

LO­CAL elec­tions are un­der­way. We know this thanks to bill­boards and ac­cu­mu­lated fly­ers of can­di­dates preen­ing for the Oc­to­ber lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tions.

I am amused to see how 'con­cerned' many can­di­dates ap­pear to be in re­gard to the 'state' of the City of Stir­ling and their 'pas­sion' for their com­mu­nity. Fine words.

Sadly, as a reg­u­lar coun­cil watcher at­tend­ing many coun­cil meet­ings many of th­ese names are un­known to me.

Some can­di­dates are reg­u­lars at coun­cil meet­ings and man­age to be pas­sion­ate all year round.

If your can­di­date comes knock­ing, ask them what ex­actly they have done to date to ad­dress the is­sues they are now so pas­sion­ate about.
