I don’t vote much anymore. I confess I have become disillusioned with the political process. Some time ago, I gave up believing our “voice” through elected officials really made a difference. Last week I noticed Lou Ann Crowley was running for office and I thought to myself, “Now there’s someone worth voting for.”
I may have given up the courage of my convictions, but she has continued to pursue service to our local community and the broader state community through elected office for many years now. I have served with Lou Ann on a committee in support of education, and I have admired her common-sense approach and ability to find ways to reach agreement without rancor and harsh judgments.
So, I’m dusting off the card that tells me which precinct I’m in and going to go to the polls for the first time in several years. I encourage you to vote for Lou Ann as well. You won’t find a more dedicated or hard-working public official.
