Negative campaigning doesn’t help voters

Letter writer says there's two weeks left to make your case for her vote

Harrison Hot Springs candidates, if you want my vote, stop all this childish behaviour! When answering the candidates questions sent by the Observer newspaper keep it short and sweet. Do not use it as a platform to promote your election campaign. If you cannot win this election on your own merits do not try and win by disrespecting other candidates.

If you have made a mistake and did not fill in your candidacy papers in correctly admit it, say you made a mistake and was sloppy. We are all human but do not take us for fools by coming up with feeble weak excuses. All questionnaires are ambiguous but the other candidates got it right. Do not tell the residents that your business does not make money. Why is it still being advertised?

Make sure your facts are correct when you hand out your candidate’s flyer. Have you checked with the Village office on how much the Spirit Square cost; I know it was not $10 million and I am not running for council. To the candidates who have kept out of the negativity of this election, thank you.

I am looking for five individual candidates who show integrity, leadership and have the ability to sit down discuss and debate items that affect the village and arrive hopefully at a positive decision. I do not vote for teams which tend to follow the leader and have no individual view point and will not argue for what they consider the best for the Village.

You have two weeks to convince me and other residents that you are the best candidate, so stop the silly arguments, blogs, and slanderous flyers and win this election on your own merits.

Good luck.
