The Candidates Have Had Their Say, Now it is Your Turn

StephenVance bw 225w 200hAfter numerous candidate meetings and debates, Soap Box Saturdays, The Meaford Independent Election Guide, and countless doors knocked upon, the candidates for the 2014 municipal election have had plenty of opportunity to have their say, and to make their views and visions known.

At The Independent, we have always valued the views and input of our readers. Next month we celebrate five years since we first launched our little paper, and in those five years we have published nearly 700 letters from our readers. Election time is an especially important time for our readers to make their views known, so we have dedicated four pages of this week's print edition to letters we have received over the last two weeks - some have been published online, some are being published exclusively in our print paper. Some are short and sweet, others are long and exhaustively researched, and all, whether we agree with them or not, are valued expressions that deserve a platform.
