Pollie tracker is a hit
WOULD-be politicians have been quick off the mark to make the most of the Daily News online pollie tracker.
During the weekend they flocked to the site to tell voters what they were up to and where they were canvassing.
Council nominee Yve Stocks logged on to say on Thursday she would head to Pratten and Leyburn to meet with residents there.
Julie Kawano attended the mining meeting in Warwick Town Hall last week and was at the Kings Theatre at Warwick RSL on Saturday.
Council observers noticed both Jamie McKenzie and Mary Rofe out pounding the Warwick pavements last week.
Current serving councillors haven't taken up the opportunity yet but the Daily News hopes they will get onboard this week and let us know what they're up to.
If you see a pollie out and about, don't forget to tell us about it.
We've had some mixed feedback on the tracker, with one local business owner saying he thought the idea was "brilliant" to keep the pollies honest.
However Rob Richards wasn't convinced.
"What is the point of keeping tabs on Mayor Ron Bellingham?" he asked.
"In the working week, he's either at the council building or out and about on business relevant to his office."
The Daily News stresses it is not encouraging readers to "stalk" politicians, merely inform us of chance encounters and sightings.
Those reporting on the "would be" category are reminded to include the name of the candidate in question
