BOB DYLAN DROPPED BY this morning to give me a hand writing today’s column. Okay, okay, maybe dropped by is a bit of an exaggeration but as I began writing, I did have his music playing in the background.
He was singing, The Times They Are A Changin, and the song seemed to fit well with some thoughts I had regarding change. And given that we are just a few weeks away from the start of campaign season, you too will soon be asked to give some thought to change.
Some voters will be demanding change as they call out for replacing all incumbents. Some candidates and voters will want to see a local government that is more business friendly. Others will claim the current government is too business friendly and insensitive to the social needs of Kamloops. And still others will feel the status quo is just fine.
