Voters at a loss
I’ve voted in every election since I’ve been eligible to in 1991. Sometimes, I was lucky to have candidates who I genuinely felt deserved my vote. In others, I voted for what I felt was the better party or simply voted against the other.
But with the current local government election and those to follow, I am forced to admit I have no idea who to vote for.
None of the players are giving me any reason to trust them or believe what they say. Worse yet, the tactics of some seem to be stirring up the most awful division in our citizens, and I imagine there is worse to come.
Even some in the media seem so caught up in the melee, I question how accurate their information is, information that
would help me decide how to vote.
And those in power, no matter what they say, seem interested solely in power, position and more power, with little, if any, thought for those they serve.
I will still vote, but as far as I am concerned, this is the worst election I’ve ever seen because no matter who wins, the citizens will lose.
