Letters: Haldane seeks impartiality from media

Sooke councillor unhappy with press coverage on run for mayor

I declared my intentions like was requested by your paper. Then you call me at my place of work to verify that I am running and ask a few questions about why. If you are going to count that as an interview then at least have the decency to print all of my thoughts not just the ones that you choose. Your paper states how this job is not for money but for the community and anyone running should understand this. Well I do understand this and would expect my local paper to at least be impartial with its editorials as this is a huge commitment. How does your paper expect new people to run if they are criticized week after week for all the heart and soul they put into the position. Sooke deserves better and so do I. I think Ben Franklin said that once as well. I am ready for a proper interview if you would like to know the whole story.

Herb Haldane
