I Get a Mention in ‘Guelph Mercury’ Article About Election Coverage

guelphmercuryIt’s been a fairly busy election season, for those of us covering the election as well as the candidates. Apparently, there are quite a few of us putting questions to all the people running in this municipal election cycle, so much so that the Guelph Mercury wrote an article about it.

The article called “Citizen groups seek to inform voters, influence Guelph municipal election outcome,” was written by Joanne Shuttleworth. Several weeks ago, she asked me to come by the Mercury newsroom to talk about the election, Guelph Politico coverage, and what effect, if any, all us grassroots (including GrassRoots Guelph) were going to have on the October 27 vote.

You’ll need to scroll down to read my contributions to the article (and that pictures a little old and a little out of context but whatever), but the article on whole makes for some pretty interesting reading (and I don’t just mean my parts). It’s fairly informative looking at just how many groups are trying to lobby for their issues, even if their issue is just a better informed electorate. I’d like to think that’s my issue too.
