Act locally. vote

Last year on election day I stayed up with my cousins texting each other as we watched a train wreck in slow motion.

The next day I got this shirt.

I come from a long line of women concerned with rights and freedoms.  We may not always agree on every point but that is ok if you come from a place of education.  Unfortunately too many times there is no education, so, when my local community needed help I was happy to “Organize, agitate and educate” I was flattered to be asked and I am glad I got the opportunity to run a positive and educational campaign.

Walking that professional and positive line is difficult.  It is so tough to not use the phrase ‘math is hard…’ because some people seriously can’t tell the difference between when the cost of something tripled v the total tripling.  That would be like saying that apples are now triple the price, my grocery bill is tripled!  no…. your apples did.  Math is hard.  So far so good with keeping professional and there are some people out there truly pushing buttons.

Polls opened at 7am and close at 8pm.  I’ve been so happy to work with the team of fellow volunteers.  So many times I was surprised by the kindness and generosity and willingness to go the extra mile.  The people I’ve met during and on the campaign have made all the difference and I think I’ve found my people here.  I’m keeping optimistic.  I did my best.  The team did all we could.  Now we wait….
