Impact on family budgets from inflation shouldn’t be dismissed

I’m disappointed that Carol Nochajski has now twice referred to concerns about food and fuel prices as “selfish”.

That’s a presumptuous declaration and stigmatizes people who have real angst about how to stretch a budget to provide food for their family and fuel to get to work, medical appointments and the like.

How about this – instead of downplaying concerns that families have, we can agree that voters are savvy enough to make informed decisions that consider multiple issues such as inflation, the electoral process, job creation / retention and the like?

An informed electorate is a powerful force and a check on candidates that don’t reflect voter values at the local, regional and national level.
