Re: "Coquitlam rejects plan to publish voters' names," Wednesday, Sept. 12.
I too am disappointed in the turnout for elections, whether they are municipal, provincial or federal and I do find the time to vote.
I am, however, glad to see every once and in a while that someone throws a suggestion out there to help increase the turnout.
However, in my opinion the reason we see a drop in voters' attendance year after year is this lack of responsiblity, accountability and honesty that most of our politicians seem to lack.
People, I believe, are tired of the typical crap at every election and tune it out.
Generally speaking, they all promise the world and deliver nothing until it seems to affect their opportunity to be elected or re-elected. Then they always find the time to increase taxes, add fees, reduce services and create new levies
The population in general can not be bothered or have the time to vote as most of us are busy working to pay for all these fees, taxes and levies put onto us by mismanagement of our dollars to start with.
If you were to run your house this way you would be living on the street in a very short period of time. Maybe that's where these politicians should go.
