This week is probably the last ‘peaceful’ week of my campaign. Next week the election posters go up and the dynamic changes. As a first time candidate I’m not sure how I’ll react to seeing my face all over the place.
This week has been dominated by questions on water charges – the lack of actual information causing concern to many. See here for my views on this issue.
Another question that has dominated is how did I get involved in politics? Given that there are so few women in politics and that many people care cynical about politics I can see how many would question why anyone would get involved. The video below tells how and why I got involved.
