Frances Bula Comments on the VIsion Candidate Meetings

Sorting out the Vision candidates

By Frances Bula

I didn’t go to the presentations this week by the Vision candidates for the three slates, but I read and heard a fair bit about them.

It was a relief to have people talking about the issues, I sensed, instead of the jostling for votes and slate inclusion that has dominated for the past while. But one thing I noticed that in people’s comments about the three evenings was that, even though the sessions were about issues, the number of candidates is so overwhelming that the focus ended up being less on specific policy suggestions than how the candidates came across: knowledgeable, nervous, relaxed, funny, trying too hard, and so on.

In addition to the commentary from Charles Menzies about the school candidates that I posted previously, the only other coverage was from The Tyee.
