Michael left us way too early. Anyone that listened to him immediately saw that his perspective was steeped in a deep love for everyday people. I take small comfort in knowing how much he accomplished. If you haven't, please listen to some of his insight.pic.twitter.com/zndcZeTXzg

Most frequent questions and answers about voting
Voting is absolutely essential to our future!! Things can change within our city and our communities, but we have to get out and vote!!! If you want better jobs, better education that all starts with voting!!!
If you don’t vote, someone else will! Voting only takes a couple of minutes but the ripple effect caused by your vote will last beyond a candidate’s term. Do you want someone else deciding for you the laws that will affect your family and community? Voting gives you the power to choose how your city, state, and country will be run. If you don’t vote, you can’t complain! Go vote and make the decision before someone else does it for you.
Elected officials and judges make day to day decisions on laws that will affect your community, law enforcement, crime prevention, traffic patterns, and where to build schools, parks, and recreational places.
Have you ever wondered why we have so many roads with potholes and no one seems to be doing anything about it? The people you elect like commissioners, legislators, governor, and members of Congress take an active role deciding what highways are needed, what public transit to support and how the bill will be paid. Vote to elect people who will do something to fix the problems we face.
