Leave him alone

AS SOMEONE interested in various aspects of local government I have applauded Toodyay’s high voter turn-out rate (Toodyay Herald, December 2017).

I like The Herald but a matter becoming irksome is that paper cannot mention Cr Brian Rayner without the ad nauseum insertion of the barb that “no one voted for him”.

It is not his fault that no other candidate stood and it is to his credit that he threw his hat into the ring.

Perhaps other readers feel as I do.

Can you imagine where you’d be if there were no candidates?
