Letter: Please get out and vote May 9

Politicians care less about are people who feel left out, the working poor, homeless, unemployed,


To the editor:

Here we are again heading into another provincial election in B.C. and I have got to say something about this seeming lack of duty that sixty percent of the people in this province ignore at election time, with excuses such as ‘There’s no one to vote for’ or my favorite: ‘My vote will make no difference.’

One thing politicians care less about are people who feel left out, such as the working poor, homeless, or the unemployed, they are counting on you not to vote. Just remember your vote does count and you do have the power to make a change.

Please get out and vote for the person who has your best interest at heart, whether they are independent or a party.

Gary Bonner, Kelowna
