As a local writer who is recognized in the community I often have people coming up to me with story ideas and suggestions about topics we should cover here in The Citizen. More often than not, I hear complaints about local politicians.
I frequently hear “You should write this or that about Doug/Rob/Gary.”
When I ask who they voted for last election the reply is often “I didn’t vote. They are all the same.”
This complacent attitude is reflected in low turnout at the polls. A lot of people couldn’t be bothered to vote, but they don’t hesitate to bitch about who is elected.
We have two elections in Cambridge this year, a provincial this month and a municipal in October. If you want to make a difference take the time to cast a ballot. Your vote matters.
If you don’t vote I don’t want to hear you bitching.Tags: Doug Rob Gary, Kevin Burnett, The Citizen
