Engage Democracy

I believe in self-government. That’s the American ideal that we the people govern ourselves through electing one of our own to represent all of us and to work for the public interest. This democratic ideal, I have been grateful to learn, is possible to achieve at the level of local government.

We are in this together. To work on our common concerns and reach our shared goals requires that we talk with each other and listen. Open lines of communication are critical. This blog, along with my Facebook posts, and my open email policy, is my way of seeking to open up those lines of communication and invite discussion.

Thanks for taking part!
