Sam Knowles, whose son Oscar suffered a horrible accident a couple of weeks ago, wrote a moving letter about why living here is great.

If there was one thing I'd like to ask candidates in this election, it's how they see their role in preserving and protecting that kind of spirit. How a politician aims to care for the intangibles that make community work is high on my list of criteria for voting.

So candidates, what do you think? How, as municipal politicians do you see your role in protecting this precious resource that Sam and Dale and Dave and so many others rely upon when overwhelming needs appear?
