This is not the end, this is a break. I'm sad, but not really sad to announce that I'm taking a month off from updating Politico save for any developments exciting or immediately important.
Basically, the timing is right. The new council won't be inaugurated until December 6th, and the budget deliberations won't really begin until January according to a recent interview with the Mayor. So basically, I'll never get another chance, he joked.
Seriously though, I've put a lot of work into Politico this year, and this election season and I'm very proud of that work and the responses I've gotten. Though election turnout tapped out at 33.9 per cent, for people like me it was dynamic and fascinating with no shortage of issues or discussion. But with that out of the way now, I want to take some time and turn my attention to some creative writing projects I've had on the back burner for a while. Rest assured though, my intention is to return to the Politico cyber-ways come December.
So thanks for tuning in. If you miss reading me, you can keep up to date with my Guelph Beat column in Echo and I'll continue to contribute arts and pop culture stuff to Press+1. If Politico helped you make a decision this election, or made you think about an issue in new and different ways, or perhaps just amused you in the middle of a boring work day, I thank you for stopping by and hope you stop by again in the future.
In the meantime, Peace. I'm out.
(See you back here in December unless, you know, stuff happens.)
