In my next editorial, I will be writing about the 2011 federal election. I am asking each candidate:
Why should the people living in Omemee and area vote for your party?

Each candidate may have 200 words to answer and include 2 links to support their answer. Order of answers published will be determined by Each answer will be published in a separate posting which will auto send to Twitter and Facebook.

Social Media Tips

Delegation is one of the most important qualities of a leader-delegate your social media work to a youth member who has an interest in social media marketing.
Save time on your social media by setting up a blog that automatically republishes to Facebook and Twitter through networked blogs.


May I suggest you use the hashtag #hklbvotes oe #r35029 to help voters in our riding find your tweets easily. It is important to have even a limited Twitter presence to help voters find you. I suggest posting a link each day to your calendar, as well as a link to something from your platform encouraging readers to ask questions.


Be sure you are using a Facebook politician's page with settings that work for you, and your constituents. It is important to have even a limited Facebook presence. You can set your settings extremely tight so that only you are able to publish or allow unlimited access the choice is yours.

Each political party may publish up to one article per week. The article should be between 300-500 words, and may contain the following links: one small picture link, 2 links within the body, and one profile link in the bio or byline.
