Because Marc Breaugh is Worthy to Represent Us
I woke up this morning with that awful sense of knowing that I cannot control the outcome of tomorrow's provincial election.
I said to Tony, "The thing that I find so upsetting is that Marc is the most qualified candidate and that doesn't mean he will win."
Tony answered with two words, "Donald Trump."
I'm not at all comparing the other candidates to Donald Trump. Only saying that the most qualified person doesn't always win and more than half of the United States is currently sucking eggs. So, Yeah, that's just the way of the world.
I wish I didn't care. I try so hard to not care, but being a politician who represents the people should be such a revered, respected, important and honoured position. The person who wins this role should be well paid, but they should also take the job very seriously and work their butt off.
The thing about Marc is that he's exactly the kind of person we need in the legislature to make politics better. He thinks deeply about the issues. He is intelligent, dilligent, tireless, committed and above all...above all, high minded. The kind of person that would choose a principle over his own job. Rare.
That's why 82 year old Margaret across the street was out with her hammer and whatever the heck that other thing is putting Marc's sign back in the grass. She actually really likes Stephen McNeil, but she's voting for Marc because she knows a quality human being when she sees one.
If you haven't voted yet, please vote for Marc Breaugh, in Lunenburg. He is worthy.
