Is your town/city running elections next week?
Are you registered to vote? Do you know who is running?
Have you researched their views and background? Do you normally vote?
Oddly enough, local elections always get a lower turnout than the gubernatorial or Presidential elections. Look folks. These elections affect you more. They help to determine your town taxes, school budgets and many other local issues related to your family’s daily life.
So get out on November 5th and cast your vote. And for those who cannot get out, call your local Registrar of Voters office and inquire how to make your vote count.
I do not care what party you support. I am just a strong believer in exercising rights.
I recently heard someone say that communities work better when we work together. I can’t remember who said it, but I could not have said it better.
See you all soon.
