This morning on the La Patio Morning Show, we feature music from Heron's eponymous first album (recorded live in a field in Berkshire in 1972!) and talk about the mayoral election, and our very own candidates' debate at Hancock Community House at 10am this morning!

Hugh also talks about a comic strip which (though intended for Australian voters) does a nice job of explaining how the STV system works and prevents "wasted votes". You can find that here: http://www.chickennation.com/2013/08/18/you-cant-waste-your-vote/ if you're interested.
