Why post who we support in the local elections?

This has become more important to state outright because Shawn DeWolfe and Ted Godwin are now collaborating with me on this website.    Here are several reasons to make it open and public about who we support in the local elections

First, is is much more honest and open if you know who we support.    We are citizens of Victoria with opinions, we are not neutral.  VictoriaVision is not a newspaper and we are not journalists.  If we did not say who we supported, that would not be transparent.

Second, we each think the people we support would be good politicians and we want to do what we can to help them get elected.   We also believe that it is important to actively promote people working for positive change.  You will see we do not agree on all the candidates.

Third, people have regularly ask us about who we would recommend in elections.   Since people ask, we provide.

None of this detracts from the major goal of this blog during local elections - providing the public with the information they need to make up their mind about who they want to vote for.

Finally, if you have reasons why you support someone and want us to post it, we will do that.  More information from more sources is never a bad thing and a better informed public is more likely to vote.
