While my voting for Andrew and only Andrew might increase the chances of getting him elected, it would also make it easier for the “same olds” to get themselves re-elected. However much I want Andrew to get onto Council, my overriding imperative in this election is to get a change – to get rid of the old guard who have got us into the mess we’re in today and get in fresh, new thinkers capable of digging us out of it. Andrew cannot do this alone!
So I will be voting for up to twelve candidates. Andrew will be one of them. I haven’t finalised my list yet but I already know that only a very few will have been on the last Council.
I hope Andrew gets elected but for the sake of the island we need an almost complete change of Council, with or without him.
