All Politics are Local!
LOCAL POLITICS DIRECTLY AFFECT YOUR DAILY LIFE
Often, when we think of government, we think of the three branches of the federal government. However, powers not granted to the federal government are reserved for the states or to the people. The vast majority of government employees are employed by your local and state governments. This means that your state—and more specifically, your local government—is directly responsible for serving your community. Local politics have the most effect on your daily life.
We have all seen our School Boards under attack in the last year. The far-right is organized and working hard to take control of local school boards. They continue to attack the teaching of historical fact and basic science. They ban books and vilify excellent teachers. The ONLY WAY TO STOP THIS is to elect School Board members who share our values.
Turn out in the consolidated election is typically in the teens percentage-wise. This means that EVERY VOTE matters a lot!
