It is a fact that eight is not divisible by 22. Therefore, 14 Township councillor wannabes will be disappointed before they go to bed on Nov. 15.
Some of the candidates will attract only a few thousand, or even a few hundred votes. At the 2011 elections more votes were cast for candidates who did not get elected than were cast for those who were elected.
It has to be assumed that the 14 candidates who are not currently serving wish to see a change in the make-up of the council, and that, if elected, they will work with other people (friend and foe) to run an effective Township council.
Candidates who are serious about creating change, you need to get together, work out which of them has a realistic chance of getting elected, and which are running for disappointment.
Then some candidates need to withdraw and throw their weight and votes behind the candidates in a position to change the political landscape in the Township.
I do not question anyoneâ€™s right to run, but the community might be best served by a change of only three or four councillors.
The same is true for the mayoral election.
