The silence of this general election is deafening.
For years I have covered elections of officials to all levels of government from the smallest towns to the U.S. president. All year people talk, complain, and argue about politics. It picks up the month before the election.
Not this time. It’s gone quiet.
We can blame the pandemic for quieting down most of our lives. But I kept waiting for the candidates’ forum. I look forward to the gatherings where we witness debates from people seeking election. We would hear their promises, priorities, and reasons they should represent us.
