You wanna know #5: Who do I vote for?

24 Oct

Well, we actually can’t answer that.

We are not in the business of endorsing candidates. Only you can decide who you want to give your support to.

But we can tell you this: You should vote.

This campaign we’ve heard lots from candidates and citizens who want to discuss issues and ideas and the future of Vaughan. That’s a great start.

Last night, though, a hiccup — Someone put up nasty signs targeting the top three mayoral candidates. Not their political records, nor their ideas. The signs target their families and their personal lives. It’s too bad some person or people chose to stoop to that level. Shame.

A city’s reputation isn’t built solely by 9 elected representatives. It’s build on the people. Some residents seem to want to continually tarnish their own city. C’mon, Vaughan. It’s time we grow up.

One way to get started: Get out and vote tomorrow.

It’s your chance to make a difference in Vaughan. Whether you are happy with your current rep, you want change, or whatever, you should get out and vote and make your voice heard. If the incumbent councillors, some or all, are reelected, you are telling them you are happy with their work.

If not, you are telling them you aren’t pleased with how things have been done. Or, on the flipside, you are telling a new candidate that you like their ideas and want them to helm the ship we call Vaughan.

Either way, we urge you to get out and vote.

Who do you want to lead Vaughan for the next four years? Who do you think can elevate Vaughan above the nastiness and cattiness that is reminiscent of schoolyard antics? Who has ideas and vision and leadership to build our city and make it stronger?

Now you know.

Or, you will know tomorrow night. Because you’ll decide.
