Elec­tions a chance for open di­a­logue

Windsor Star - - OPINION - Jane E. McArthur, Tecumseh

As a res­i­dent of Wind­sor-Es­sex, I am look­ing for­ward to the op­por­tu­nity that the up­com­ing pro­vin­cial and mu­nic­i­pal elec­tions open up in the way of di­a­logue be­tween and among mem­bers of our com­mu­nity and those in or run­ning for po­lit­i­cal of­fice. While we may of­ten feel dis­con­nected from the po­lit­i­cal process, now is the mo­ment to be­gin to talk — and per­haps more im­por­tantly lis­ten — to your fam­ily, friends, neigh­bours, co-work­ers and can­di­dates so that we can work to­gether to shape the fu­ture that we want and need for our re­gion.

If we can all move into the process with an open­ness for true and some­times dif­fi­cult di­a­logue, we also open up the pos­si­bil­i­ties for mak­ing our re­gion the best it can be for all who live here.
