Pre-teen brothers review Creston election forum

Web Lead

To the Editor:

On Oct. 1 we went to see the guys who are running for representative: Don Johnston was for the Liberal Party, Wayne Stetski was for the NDP (New Democratic Party), Bill Green was for the Green Party and David Wilks was for the Conservative Party.

I think the one better at speaking was Wayne Stetski. The one with better ideas was Bill Green. The one that was the bubbliest was Don Johnston, and David Wilks was very serious and very nervous (he even chewed on his fingernails halfway through the presentation).

And when everyone went on stage, they all shook hands and said luck to each other, and David Wilks didn’t shake hands or didn’t say good luck. I have a feeling that he expects to win because he spent a lot of money on trying to win. He had posters everywhere and they’re huge, and even has ads on YouTube saying vote for me (he also won the last three years).

If I had the right to vote I would vote in this order: 1. Wayne Stetski, 2. Bill Green, 3. Don Johnson, 4. David Wilks. Why I vote for David last is because he always talks about what he did in the past, and I want to know about his ideas for the now and possibly the future. That’s why I’m voting for Wayne Stetski.

To the Editor:

On Oct. 1 we went to a meeting of the candidates to see who to vote for. We will go in little parts for this.

David Wilks: I think that he expected to be the winner. He was eating his fingernails and he did not shake hands with the other presenters, and I think he lost a lot of his money in putting out advertisements.

Wayne Stetski: I liked him most of all. He shook hands and he said good things that he would do and he was a good man. I vote for him. I want him to be our representative.

This is about a man named Don Johnson. I liked him so-so. You could say he shook hands but I did not like what he said, so that looks like it’s the end.
