I have asked all local candidates for their platforms relating to the wide net of triple-bottom-line sustainability principles. You can see my post about this here . I have already received a detailed response from one candidate, and I will be running all responses received in about two weeks on my Sustainable Pattie blog, with a link from this blog. I recommend you do something similar where you live. Don't be afraid to speak up. You will not be alone; this I assure you. I have yet to have one opinion that hasn't been shared by others. And, in fact, by voicing my concerns, I have met some of the best friends of my life, right here in the Little City that Could.
