Calling Local Media !! New Albany Does Exist.... or Does It ??
Throughout this current campaign season I've noted several indepth Q and A articles in the Tribune with candidates such as the one in yesterdays edition with the Jefferrsonvilles' nominees for Mayor.
These articles have included candidates from several of our surrounding communities.
However, unless I missed them, I have yet to see such involving New Albany's candidates. There have been the occasional clips from time to time concerning the hot button issue of a particular day, but nothing that even closely resembles the article I referenced above.
So now I ask the questions. Do the local papers editors or its reporters not feel New Albanys' as newsworthy or important as the rest of our area?
Can they not find the time to track down our nominees and interview them?
Could it be that our Candidates do not feel that it is important for us to go to the polls as informed voters?
Or worse yet, do our Candidates just not have a platform concerning this citys' future to put before us?
Sadly my take is that all of the above are complicit in creating this situation.
So the question here is the same as it is for many of our woes. How do we break this deadlock?
Or better yet, do we really want to?
