We have an important set of elections coming up in May. The school districts combined with the city account for 75% of our local taxes.
Now is the time to encourage people to get involved. Run for office. Find someone to run for office. Support someone running for office. We don’t deserve better if we don’t get involved.
I ran across this quote from Thomas Jefferson the other day:
“If once the people become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, Judges and Governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature, in spite of individual exceptions.”
A number of our readers publish links to this blog on a daily basis. We thank you.
Our purpose is to stimulate involvement without regard to position. We encourage those of you who would like to contribute to the blog to let us know. We try to stay away from being personal or vulgar.
We deserve better, but we have to work for it.
