I cast my absentee ballot today.
I was pleased that our town hall knew not to charge for notarizing it. Sometimes small town government gets it right.
I was disappointed that candidates of both major parties and the two major parties themselves seem to be retreating to the worst positions within the parties.
I believe the people want representatives that will work together for the common good, but our choices seem fixed on seeking the extremes.
Wherever possible, I selected an independent candidate. I know that few have a snowball’s chance, but I want whoever is elected to know that their time is running out. Soon enough there will be enough people who have had enough with the status quo.
I want representatives that will work for the common good not for the extreme ideals of either party.
If you are out there and called to make a difference in 2016, start building your grass roots base now.
