Unhappy with last night’s election results? Tired of low voter turnouts? Want to make people over politics the determining factor in choosing candidates for office?
You have to make the choice to participate more in our government. We have to be more involved in our communities at large. Politics aren’t only about compromise, more importantly the influence of others is about caring and compromise. Understanding from where we come and what we want as individuals. There is a local Beacon democratic committee meeting this Saturday November 11th @ 9:30AM and every Second Saturday located at the BeaHive, 291 Main Street. Our local GOP have monthly meetings also.
Join in on the meetings, listen clearly, take notes and observe. Contribute when you can. The biggest mistake I️ made was resigning from the local democratic committee and removing myself from the table... “If you’re not at the table then you’re on the menu”. If this election proved anything it showed that we can’t run for office, plan, organize, and mobilize by ourselves. The work it takes to build a better Beacon begins today.
“If something needs fixing, then lace up your shoes and do some organizing,” the President implored. “If you’re disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clip board, get some signatures, and run for office yourself.” -President Obama
