Letters: Let’s aim to have highest voter turnout in B.C.

I totally agree with what was said and I’m also discouraged at the turn out by the residents of Hammond.

Re: Campaign stop: Hammond (The News, Oct. 29).

I totally agree with what was said and I’m also discouraged at the turn out by the residents of Hammond because I went to a lot of trouble to get the people out to hear what the candidates had to say, and to also encourage the residents of not only Hammond, but those of all of Maple Ridge to come out and hear them.

I also encouraged them to vote, either on Nov. 1, Nov. 5, Nov. 8 or Nov. 15.

I’m not happy with only 25 per cent of the population coming out to vote, so if you don’t vote, don’t complain at me or any other person because it is you right to vote.

So get out there. I would love to see the highest vote in all the province coming from Maple Ridge.
