Southbridge town council candidate Dennis Martinek has released through his campaign website as well as YouTube the first in a planned series of campaign videos.
The animated power-point-like presentation focuses on the issue of Southbridge property taxes.
If this presentation is emblematic of the upcoming installments in the series it marks a welcome development in local campaigning. Rather than repeating the tired insubstantial nostrums and unfounded happy talk about which I’ve complained repeatedly, Martinek’s presentation provides solid factual data.
I can only hope that future installments will not only stick to this distinction, but amplify it with concrete proposals for actions to correct Southbridge’s ills.
