In an ideal world, I'd like to see the ideas of all three candidates put
into practice. By and large they don't contradict each other, and they
all sound pretty solid to me. We can only elect one person, and that's
for a whole mix of qualifications that aren't just about their goals for
the project. Please don't take selection of one person as lack of
approval for the ideas of another.
