    To me, Mr. Winston came off as almost desperate in his wanting to be on the council. We’ll see what happens on the August 10th roundtable with all the candidates.

  2. Annette Says:

    This is well worth watching. I’m going to endorse Kirsten as a result. I like her approach. I agree with her philosophy of maintainting our island way of life, while showing willingness to compromise and find good solutions. Kurt’s views on fiscal responsibility are good, his objections to Winslow Tomorrow are appropriate, but he seems to offer criticism without ideas. He says repeatedly that he has experience, but I hear, “trust me”, not concrete suggestions for improving conditions on the council or the island. He is a bit crumdogonish, and I don’t think that’s what we need now. Tim didn’t say anything very specific, but I heard several references to making it easier for business to operate here, yet no clear vision for how to do that and maintain our quality of life. I’m definitely going to support Kirsten!
