Tuesday Nov. 4 is Election Day.
We will choose a Governor, Lieutenant Governor, our constitutional officers, a member of Congress and all of our State Representativesand Senators.
As you can see there is a lot at stake.
Voting is an American right and privilege and we owe it to ourselves, our town, our state and our country to exercise that right.
Regardless of your political affiliation, Democrat, Republican, Independent or another party I encourage you to spend the small amount of time it will take to cast your ballot for the candidates of your choice.
Too often you hear people say, “my vote doesn’t matter.” Well, I am proof that it does.
In 2011, my Town Council race was a dead tie when the polls closed, 797 votes for my opponent and 797 votes for me.
While I ultimately ended up winning by four votes in a re-canvass, I am proof that your vote does matter.
FDR (Franklin Delano Roosevelt) once said, “Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.”
Please make the time and the effort to go to the polls on November 4th!
