Labour Boys - no letting up
Winning many votes in this area by labour is a hard task. It will even be more so his year because during the Fergy's reign, he completely neglected the people. His only visits to the community was to engage in his clandestine affairs.
But since Bousquet won last elections he has been visiting the area frequently and has completed many small projects from retaining walls to footpaths, drive-ways to drainage.
The Lamaze road which had been an eye sore for years was finally surfaced.
To have these people to change their minds can be quite an uphill battle for the labour party. Last elections Rufus lost in this polling division by three votes compared to wider margins before. Our recent local poll gives Bousquet a lead of 45 votes with a + or - 5% this time around.
However elections are won at the polls not on paper. But there is a clear message here....polling division I5 belongs to Rufus not Lorne.
