do you know the name of your congressman, city council representative and school board president?
when was the last time you contacted any of them to voice your opinions or to find out theirs? when was the last time you attended one of their meetings?
when was the last time you discussed political issues important to your immediate neighborhood with your neighbors? do you have meaningful conversations with your neighbors? do you even know their names?
to promote good government we need an active, aware and accountable public that understands that "involvement" means a whole lot more than casting a few votes every 2 to 4 years...
