Unlike the vast majority of the candidates who have done little more than stuff our mailbox with flyers, current Esquimalt councillor Tim Morrison actually took the time to knock on our door last Sunday to introduce himself and ask what was important to me/us in the upcoming municipal election. To date he is the only candidate to take the time to engage directly.
In addition he hung around long enough, about 20 minutes, to happily answer a few questions I had specific to our property re: tree pruning. Very nice, very congenial fellow. As a result and after perusing his bio on the municipal site, I'll very likely vote for the man.
Note to other candidates if the very best you can do is simply clog my mailbox with your mailouts its highly likely the only attention I am going to pay them is when I retrieve and toss them into a blue recycling box. Unread.
