The Gecko and The 2015 Election

You may recognize the reptile to the right of this column.

This Tuesday’s question is not are you willing to spend 15 minutes to save 15% on car insurance, but are you willing to spend 10 minutes to determine the future direction of your community? 

The Free Enterprise Forum estimates total voting time this election will average 10 minutes from the time voters step into the voting location.  As an off-off year election, regular readers understand how the import of their vote is multiplied.

Elections Matter – As one who follows local public policy for a living, I firmly believe not only elections matter — voting matters.

The Free Enterprise Forum is a non partisan public policy organization that does not endorse candidates but it does endorse, encourage, and cajole voter participation.

Don’t know what district you live in?  Use the tool above

Don’t know where your polling place is located — Use the tool above

Don’t know what is on the ballot? — Use the tool above

Don’t know who to vote for — get educated about the candidates

While I am not one who subscribes to the notion that if you don’t vote you lose your right to complain, I do however believe the future belongs to those who show up and those who stand up.

No, we do not have a multi-million dollar reptilian driven ad campaign to generate voter turnout — all we have is you.

Do your part — vote!

Respectfully Submitted,

Neil Williamson
