Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD Saturday, September 1! ,i For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Edilor A Calendar Of Local happenings THE IMPORTANCE of having a large, varied and competent slate of candidates for Ihe forth- coming civic election has been reiterated by others. Yet the one organization in the city which active- ly seeks out persons who would fill these posts, would seem to be defeating its own purpose The Civic Government Association, a rather loose- ly-knit body of interested persons approaches men and a few" women in the community to run for civic office. 11 holds an open meeting to which any person may attend and any person may stand up at that meeting and be nominated as a CGA-supported can- didate. This is nil to the good. BUT, then, for the sup- posed interest of the people, sitting in the chairs out front an election is held to eliminate the extra bodies over the number of vacancies. This is quite wrong and quite unfair. In the first place those attending the meeting ivere informed that they were the association. They could decide upon the way things should be handled. No one queried the policy of only selecting exactly the number of candidates needed, and no one was given the opportunity to decide Secondly, people come to a nomination meeting because they are interested in the candidates, the city and the election. They'll have their go-round at "their polling booth on Oct. 13. They don't need miniscule elections to keep interest alive. Most important of all, it's extremely unfair to ask an individual to run for office, have him go through the decision-making process and then be shot down by the very people who are supposed to be supporting and encouraging him. At the Wednesday CGA meeting, the chosen ones wore being congratulated, and the losers (sic) con- soled. There were no losers, and certainly no winners. Congratulate anyone who is willing to place himself or herself on the public grandstand, by all means. Be there to congratulate them a few more limes in the next three years. But to console someone for not getting in on the CGA ticket means nothing. Anyone is entitled to run as an independent, and many choose to, most suc- cessfully. A venture inlo political life is often a timid one, and in this election more than any other in the his- tory of Lethbridge. a strong slate is vital. There can be no such thing as too many candidates. To select a field of eight aldermen, for example, one would re- quire a very minimum of at last 14 candidates. Not one person interested in civic office should be sacrificed at the expense of a bit of entertain- ment for the spectators. Perhaps the ad hoc committee will keep the pos- sibility of approving all possible candidates in mind. And perhaps the electorate will pass on their opin- ions to its members.
