The local elections are a great opportunity to decide on who we want to represent our communities over the next three years. With elections just around the corner, this is a good time to pinpoint the issues that affect you and are important to you.
Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?

So here's an eye opener....finished lunch, but didn't finish the plate since food was too oily at Henderson mall. This early 20's kid came to me and asked for change, I refused for obvious reasons.Then next he asked for my LEFT OVERS on the plate so he can have something to eat!!!!!......Man what in the actual ....!!! The regret I felt for that young man went to the core. Imagine his self respect,in his youth,his future,his friends......
Straight up, what I saw was that we have failed as a whole to take care of each other, failure of politicians and governments,failure in making a better future for the younger generation or any other generation for that matter😔
And of course this is why we should NEVER throw away food. Here's a good reason for myself and everyone else to remember!!!
Someone please point me towards where I can be a help to people that's struggling to find ends meet or to have a meal or where we can help the up and coming generations.
