FROM THE EDITOR
In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s election year. We’re getting down to the business end with voting papers getting posted on September 11.
In with your voting papers, you’ll get the standard head shot of the candidates and their profile. So this year, we’re trying something a little different.
Instead of putting profiles in our pages, we first asked you, dear readers, what the big issues were.
We then took the top three, and posed these, as broad as we could, to each of the candidates.
This week, we kick off with the good old election year favourite, health.
Each candidate was emailed the format and the topics last week, and were given the same deadline to provide 150 words on the topic which we would whittle down to include in our article.
So, for your enlightenment, we present to you this week your candidates and their statements on health.
Take note, and no matter what else you do, vote.
