This week’s radio commentary:
Incredible opportunities await us this year with the Fall Primary on September 14 and the General Election on November 2. Voting is certainly important, but elections are about much more than the votes we cast. Getting good people elected to office, at all levels, is hard work—and voting is just the culmination of all that work and, quite frankly, represents our minimum involvement as citizens.
As voters with the opportunity and responsibility to choose from among us individuals to rule over us, elections are both scary and exciting. The scary part is knowing whether the candidates we support will accurately represent our views, rights and values and will do so with integrity, determination and courage. The exciting part is the opportunity to help good candidates win.
