MORE CAN­DI­DATES SOUGHT

Central Otago Mirror - - CONVERSATIONS - Alice Ste­wart

Democ­racy.

It’s why we have to en­dure the Trump pres­i­den­tial cam­paign. Lu­di­crous.

That’s how a lot of rel­a­tively sane peo­ple view Trump.

Hate Trump or love Trump at least he has ig­nited the peo­ple of the USA to get in­volved in pol­i­tics and, hope­fully, ul­ti­mately to vote. Ap­a­thetic.

This is what the peo­ple of the Cen­tral Otago are, sad but true.

Maybe it’s be­cause Cen­tral Otago doesn’t want to build a wall to keep Queen­stown Lakes out.

Maybe be­cause noth­ing re­ally im­por­tant ac­tu­ally hap­pens here.

I dis­agree with this but with 10 places on the coun­cil un­con­tested proves me wrong. Com­mis­er­a­tions.

This is what I am send­ing to the peo­ple of the Earn­scle­ugh - Manuherikia Ward. You de­serve bet­ter.

Don­ald Trump has at least ig­nited Amer­i­cans to get in­volved in pol­i­tics, writes Alice Ste­wart.
