LAST MONTH on CFJC Today, Bill McQuarrie talked about what voters can expect in the upcoming election campaign.
He got out his crystal ball and predicted certain topics that will be up for debate.
Not actual names of candidates, mind you, but characteristics in candidates you should be looking for.
First, put some stock into a candidate’s experience — but not too much stock.
The most successful councillors in the past have had a wide range of ages and life experiences.
It’s far more helpful to look at a candidate’s level of energy and enthusiasm for the job than the experience section of their resume.
Don’t make the mistake of believing someone is unqualified for the job based on their gender, age, race, sexual orientation or economic standing.
