The idea of Mayor Isitt is chilling to the core, but perhaps the better question - who would be an effective challenger to Helps or Isitt as the case might be.
I feel like whoever it is needs to get out there and establish themselves as a critic every time the new CoV govt does something stupid. Almost like an opposition critic. Build a following via social media, blogs, youtube, wherever over the next 4 years. And don't just criticize but give your own vision of how things could be better. Let people get to know you and what you're about.
Don't know who that person is. It could be Stephen Hammond and really it would be a great way to show voters what they missed out on. But whoever it is needs to get both themselves and their positions known.
