My civic duty

"All politics is local."  -- Tip O'Neill

We tend to think of politics in broad, national terms.  Especially in a presidential election year, our focus is on the big picture -- the White House and Congress.

We tend to forget the huge impact local political issues can have on our lives. 

This morning, on my way to work, I took the time to do my civic duty.  I stopped at the high school and voted in the school board election.

No, I no longer have children in the public school system.  But I support public school education, and I want to see my local school district thrive.
