Letter: Vote!

Editor:

I vote and you should too. Yes, this is a cliché “voting is a way to speak your mind and let your voice be heard, your vote is your voice.” Our votes really do count and one vote really does make a difference. If you don’t vote for the representation you trust and believe in, others will and we may not be happy with the outcome.

Voting changes communities and we have to vote to effect a good outcome. Voting is our chance to make a difference in our own lives and within the cities and town in which we live. It is an honor to stand up and vote. Voting gives us credibility. Often times, we voice our concerns to elected officials, but if we aren’t voting, our concerns may not matter at all to them. Voting can actually give us the credibility to make our concerns a top priority for legislators and local officials.

There are several races at the local level that are critically important and your vote can determine the course of action and representation that will affect us all.

Your selection of representatives ultimately determines the allocation of resources for a range of public services, putting your tax dollars to work. Not only should you vote for the candidate you believe is most effective but it is your duty to make him or her accountable once in office.

It is our opportunity and responsibility to make a difference in our communities, and our future. Our representatives play a vital role in determining the level of support, financial management of our cities and towns and it is their job to advocate on behalf of their constituency.

It is our government and we are all responsible. Voting is one of the most valuable and powerful things we own so let’s use it. GO VOTE!
