WEB EXTRA: ‘Biased, non-inclusive smear campaign’ rankles voter

Dear editor,

Comox Valley Common Sense has a list of candidates they favour on their website and in pre-recorded phone calls to the public.

Dear editor,

The Comox Valley Common Sense group has published a list of candidates they favour on their website and in pre-recorded phone calls to the public.

Unfortunately, a group like theirs who advocates openness and transparency possesses neither of those traits. They still haven’t revealed who the group members are.

In my opinion, the endorsed candidates were already hand-picked long before the surveys went out. Common Sense tells me that in order to have an accurate conclusion, one must have all the data first.

The CVCS group has neither. They did, however, have plenty of time and money to prepare for their biased, non-inclusive smear campaign.

I have looked at the answers of some of the candidates who answered the survey but not picked. Their answers were fair.

Here’s a common sense idea. Vote with your own common sense and values. Pick the candidates you think best fits your ideals and vision.

Do not rely on some fringe group whose members think that they know better than you, and think they can influence ‘sheeple’ voters.

M. Erickson,

Comox
