March 5; Tuesday is Brattleboro's citizens chance to take action and vote for the directions each feels best for our town. Brattleboro is a nice place to live. It has many challenges needing to be addressed. I am in hopes that the many people of this town take the time to vote. So many of us have so many opinions of what is good for the town and what is not good for our town.
I do hope that there is a large number of citizens here willing to do more then spill out opinions of what is right and what is wrong and vote. Vote not only for your passions, but for the better of the town. We as townfolk can build a stronger financial community focused town. All we need to do is to take a few moments and learn about the people running for office and issues on the ballet, and then vote.
Voting is more then a right. Voting is the best means to help this town grow into a community of action. There might be a lesson in watching the people of the federal congress who have decided to give up in trying to come into some type of agreement with a healthy budget. For me it is another sign that the citizens of this country prefer to create a great devision and and unwillingness to try to work together to resolve these problems we are facing. The need for resolution seems to not matter. We can not change the direction of congress at the moment, it seems. We can take action here in our town to work towards building a better Brattleboro. Brattleboro has such beauty and it would be a great loss if the people of this town become unwilling to take the time to vote.
