Bluffs needs change

The Sun Times (Owen Sound) - - OPINION -

Hav­ing lived in Geor­gian Bluffs for the past 13 years I am hop­ing to see a re­fresh on Geor­gian Bluffs coun­cil.

I was happy to see that some in­di­vid­u­als still make the ef­fort to meet the peo­ple whom they hope to rep­re­sent. May­oral can­di­date Scott Catto and coun­cil­lor hope­ful Grant Pringle came to our door to meet us. This is the first time any­one in 13 years has vis­ited our home. Send­ing a flyer de­liv­ered by some­one else or putting an over abun­dance of signs up may sway those who go by name recog­ni­tion only but I hope not.

Per­haps some have been sit­ting too long on their lau­rels and some fresh blood is needed to move the town­ship for­ward. I checked with a long time res­i­dent who has lived on my road for 34 years. Only once in that time did a coun­cil­lor at­tend their home at vot­ing time.

No won­der we don’t seem to be mov­ing for­ward. Now’s the time for change. May the best per­son win “for the peo­ple”.
