The debate is heating up on DrumhellerMail.com. Election fever is in the air, a time for new ideas, dissenting views, and heated discussion. The Drumheller Mail and inSide Drumheller are striving for the best coverage of the 2010 municipal election, and are giving readers a chance to learn more about Drumheller candidates’ views on various issues. DrumhellerMail.com has posted a special Drumheller 2010 Election page with exclusive web content not found in the newspaper or anywhere

else. We are asking those running for mayor and council in Drumheller some questions to learn more about them and their views. The goal is to spark commentary, present differing opinions, and overall to inform voters on the candidates so they are prepared to vote come election day. Last week, candidates were asked some questions, including: • What are the three main things that you feel the Town of Drumheller can improve upon in the next council term? • A well functioning town council

needs to have mutual respect, diverse ideas, good communication and a cohesive voice. What do you feel you can contribute to achieve this? • Would you support tax incentives to actively draw new business to Drumheller? We are getting some interesting responses and hope voters are getting the information they want and deserve. Keep checking DrumhellerMail. com for more updates, more questions and insight.
