We’re sure to have some new officials after Election Day, as well as some incumbents.
We hope these people will stand by their promises of better, more responsive government, but our role as citizens doesn’t end at the ballot box.
We must put forth the effort to let our officials know what our priorities are before we criticize.
We must make an effort to keep up with the issues in our community, and it never hurts to attend a government meeting or two, just to get an idea of what goes on.
Democracy is a two-way street.
