No sign of politicos in my home town

Day in, day out, I see Micheal Martin, Eamon Gilmore, Enda Kenny, etc, press the flesh in shopping centres in Dublin, Castlebar, Cork -- you name it. What's wrong with Waterford?

With the call to 'come out and vote', I have been dismayed with the lack of door-to-door canvassing in the city.

I thought I would have the opportunity to discuss issues with the likes of Fine Gael, Fianna Fail, Labour, even Sinn Fein and give them a piece of my mind and vent my spleen.

Yet not one candidate has called to my door -- well, one did call, but he was a representative of the Labour candidate.

My pent-up frustration has left me having to 'kick the cat' instead.

So, my question is, where are all Waterford's wannabe politicos?
