After watching the American election and the stunning outcome, I do think it points to something absolutely critical that gets lost in all the talk about policy and platforms – and that is the people.
I have to agree with what some of the folks are saying; I fully agree with the feelings of people that a lot of elected officials forget that they work for the very people who elected them; they lose sight of that fact once they get elected. That is why I have always thought it is important to listen to the residents, directly and continuously. But actually, not just listen to them, but to speak with them, keep them informed and engaged. The more engaged everyone is, the better our Town is. That is the reason I choose to go door to door to meet with residents and hear their thoughts and concerns, that is why I meet with residents whenever there is an opportunity. No one person has the answers, but together we can work to solve issues and make our Town a better place – now and in the future.
It’s about working together to get things done..
