Voter turn-out 'heartening'

AS AN outsider with a soft spot for Toodyay, I celebrate the high response rate in the recent council election.
Here in the City of Gosnells, we had one of the lowest participation rates, as many residents found it to be ‘ho-hum’ as 31 candidates vied for seven vacancies.
 
With due respect to those who prefer not to vote, I see it as heartening for the Toodyay community to so embrace the election.
 
And I thought Helen Shanks’ “New dynamic” letter in last month’s Herald rounded out the matter quite evenly.
