Peter Bevan-Baker on Priorities

PEI Green Party leader Peter Bevan-Baker on the importance of priorities:

Politics is how we make collective decisions, and it touches on every aspect of our shared lives. Part of the art of politics, I believe, is in choosing what priorities get placed at the front of the line. The word priority quite literally means “prior to” – what things need to be done prior to the rest. In that sense you can’t have a whole bunch of priorities, only a few.

I think regular blogging should be an expected duty of any member of the legislature; it’s a form of communication tailor-made for the profession, and I so appreciate Peter’s regular insights.

PC MLA Brad Trivers is a thoughtful blogger too; I’d like to read 27 MLAs’ blogs, though, not just two, and wish others would join in.
