…. we want and need, or not?
The other day someone by way of comment said the following:
Anyone have an idea how many people really read this blog. Are we peeing into the wind, and are most people just going with the flow. That doesn’t mean that they are the silent majority, but they just don’t give a damn what happens. Come voting time, they may not vote, and if they vote will say” that’s the way it is” and vote Decoux, or say “time for change” and vote for Painter. It’s a little. late for an up the middle” candidate and I do not see the support for one. We are caught between the devil we know and the person we do not know but hope he’s ok. We are screwed either way….
As it stands right now voters here in the Pass basically have two choices for mayor. One choice is to assume the worst (either ‘new school’ or ‘old school’), and then you can be guaranteed that it’ll happen. The other is to assume that there is some hope for change (middle-way), in which case it’s possible that you can help to effect change. So you’ve got two choices, one guarantees the worst will happen, the other leaves open the possibility that things might get better. Given those choices, a decent person doesn’t hesitate. Or, do they?
I’m curious, with these different schools of thought in mind, if an election were to be held next week which school would you vote for? Would it be:
New School (Bruce Decoux)
Middle School (John Prince or ?)
Old School (Blair Painter)
To your left is a poll I have set up for you to vote. Let’s see what you and others think?
You never know, in more ways than one you might be determining the future; at the very least, it will be interesting to come back to this poll after the election.
The future depends on what we do in the present.
