After a hectic week like that one, awash with politicians and promises, Sunday offers a welcome respite.
Unless you are already planning to get out and about for a very good cause, the inaugural Run for a Cause to support the Ballarat Foundation and its push to boost food security for everyone, I hope the morning offers you some peace and rare idleness.
It might also give readers a time for some reflection and catch up on missed ideas. We hope some of our longer stories give you just that capacity to consider what is happening and will happen in your city
The bidding war going on between the politicians shows clearly the regional seats of Wendouree, Buninyong and Ripon are highly prized as part of their plan to lead Victoria in the next four years. But whichever way you vote, rusted-on or open-to-a-swing, it would be worth considering what really will benefit Ballarat most. Our aim is to keep bringing you the information you need to make that choice.
On this and so much more, we hope the reward for your loyalty to The Courier is your confidence you are staying informed about what is happening across the region.
