We would just like to take this opportunity to thank all the candidates for the Lerwick North Ward who have taken the time to come visit us (NOT) and discuss their and our local issues.
If we have been out when you came then we apologise, but as there has been no sign of any leaflets we can only assume you have never been.
We did get one leaflet through the letterbox the other night but before I could get to the door the car had sped off so I don’t even know if it was the candidate or just someone delivering it for them.
It’s good to see that some candidates are at least making a big effort to try and see as many of their constituents as possible, but I’m afraid as our’s don’t seem interested in making the effort to see us, please don’t expect us to come vote for you.

Shetland News is asking its many readers to consider start paying for their dose of the latest local news delivered straight to their PC, tablet or mobile phone.
Journalism comes at a price and because that price is not being paid in today’s rapidly changing media world, most publishers - national and local - struggle financially despite very healthy audience figures.
Most online publishers have started charging for access to their websites, others have chosen a different route. Shetland News currently has over 350 supporters who are all making small voluntary financial contributions. All funds go towards covering our cost and improving the service further.
Your contribution will ensure Shetland News can: -
- Bring you the headlines as they happen;
- Stay editorially independent;
- Give a voice to the community;
- Grow site traffic further;
- Research and publish more in-depth news, including more Shetland Lives features.
If you appreciate what we do and feel strongly about impartial local journalism, then please become a supporter of Shetland News by either making a single payment or by monthly subscription.
