Municipal election campaigning is in full swing here in Bay Roberts NL. Candidates have their signs strategically placed, pamphlets and posters printed and many have decided to go door to door and introduce themselves to the voting public. In my opinion, they all should be commended for throwing their hats into the ring in a quest to do their part in keeping the ball rolling in our active community.
I am writing a quick blog as a reminded to those in our community that this election (for some) may not be prominent on your radar but it is essential for our future and your vote does count.
In 2009 the voter turnout was 53% , I am sure we can do better than that!!
Please become part of the process, learn the facts, listen to the candidates, form your opinion and please vote!!!
Below is the Notice of Candidates for our election, I wish each person the best of luck!
