Look what came in the mail: a 'Special Edition' of our Town Council's newsletter informing us of major upgrades to our neighbourhood yet to come. This arrived hot on the heels of news of the upcoming elections.
The campaign message is clear. The incumbents have long-term plans for our overall comfort, prosperity and property values. It's a statement of how our tax dollars are being responsibly spent and will be returned to us as a collective benefit... provided no change in the status quo.
It's hard to argue political abstractions when faced with practical, material issues put this way. Guess this marks the first salvo fired across the Opposition's bow in our constituency. I look forward to a lively debate over the next few weeks/months.
