Elect new ideas

There is a lot of discontent on our Island and election time is upon us to perhaps change the ways that things have been going.

There is a lot of discontent on our Island and election time is upon us to perhaps change the ways that things have been going.

Hopefully, new young blood will stand up and listen to the public to give new fresh directions in representing the will of the people that elect them. I recall that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result each time. Well here we go again, expecting new and different results of those we elect — will we end up in the same place as we have been complaining about all this time?

Yes, we must all vote, but be careful who you vote for. Personally, I think the most important item on the list is to vote for people who will protect our home and native land. The environment sustains us and we must protect it at all cost.
