Thanks for the link - I see some 'about me' text but I'd rather thought that
would have been built on to more clearly identify key 'campaign issues' and some

Do any candidates have a wiki page of their own with a bit more council-oriented

No :)
That would require thought and I'm in 'persuade me' mode right now. <grin>

I thought maybe the candidates had recognised issues and stood thinking they
needed representation?

Anyhow, to be more constructive, whilst I'd like to know what issues you are
standing for Andrew, I suspect that information won't help me decide how to vote.

The candidates are more likely to be of a mind than in most political elections
- but seeing how candidates identify, differentiate and analyse issues and how
they propose to tackle them would really help. I think some of the text on that
page goes in the right direction but there's a lot about technical qualification
(good - thanks) - but I wonder if you guys shouldn't have a little more
vision/proposal backed up by some "delivery manager" spiel too.
