Years ago when Bay Island News was a printed publication, I had a section called “Polly Waffle” wherein our local politicians held forth in regard to their own areas of responsibility, Federal, State and Local.
As we we nearing an election, I decided to expand this to the candidates as well.
Additionally, while State has at least an opposition (and an no upper house), federal has both, there are no checks and balances on Local Government.
So I am contemplating inviting two people who stood for our area as an ‘opposition’, so to speak. I’m still developing this latter idea.
However, all the candidates for State will be invited to fill their columns, with facts, not political party rhetoric. That’s how I ran it in the print media, and that is how it will be run online!
