Vote! It is very importantPosted Tuesday, November 6, 2012, at 8:00 AM
Election Day is finally here, and tomorrow morning will be the end of political ads, yard signs, annoying phone calls as well as those ugly, negative TV and radio commercials.
It's time to wash the mud off and get down to business for the politicians. The winners now need to focus on the business of running our national, state and local governments in a responsible manner.
Tomorrow, the pressure will be on the newly elected officials to live up to our expectations--and keep their campaign promises. Somehow, too many of them seem to forget that part of the electoral process.
This nation, state and county needs leaders who will lead, and not make excuses for what they have inherited.
We all need leaders who are able to leave politics at the door step and think about the needs of the people -- the constituents who elected them.
This country, state and county needs God-fearing men and women in public office who will view the issues with Christian eyes and spirits and not be afraid to do the right thing and cast the 'tough' vote.
We as citizen deserve to have elected officials who realize they work for the people who cast the votes.
We as citizens of this nation, state and county should demand accountability and when it is not given, we can, and they can expect change.
For too long, politics have reigned in our legislative halls and executive branches and it's time the people's voice is heard. In this nation, state and county the way we make our voice known is through the ballot box.
Please vote Tuesday, if you have not already done so. Your vote-- every vote-- is important.
