by. Neil Williamson, President
Don’t laugh it off. As a reader of this blog, you have self identified an interest in local public policy.
Here in the rains of April, November seems very distant.
Candidates of all stripes, both successful and unsuccessful, have indicated the more time you have as a candidate, the more doors you knock on, the better honed your message becomes.
Think about it, you as a candidate.
What do you think are the key issues for the 2012 local campaign?
Yes, there is a litany of “evergreen” issues in each locality. Who should be determining the extent (and expense) of local government involvement in these issues.
The Free Enterprise Forum is a non partisan public policy organization and does not endorse candidates. We do believe in contested elections. We hate to see a candidate run unopposed.
As you look around, who would you like to see elected to a four year term in your jurisdiction?
Don’t forget to look in the mirror.
Neil Williamson is the President of The Free Enterprise Forum, a privately funded public policy organization covering the City of Charlottesville as well as Albemarle, Greene, Fluvanna, Louisa and Nelson County.
