The Constitution of the United States begins with these words: We the People.
From the beginning, government in the United States is meant to be of, for and by the People. That’s us.
We have become very much aware that elections have consequences. Every election. Our vote is our voice in government. Our vote affects the liberty, justice and rights we cherish, and how our tax dollars will be spent. Silence is not an option. The opportunity to let our voice be heard occurs at least every six months: every Primary Election and every General Election. Every year. And in between elections, we can contact our members of Congress, our State Legislators, our Berks Commissioners and our Borough Council members to hold them accountable, express our concerns and address the day’s issues.
We are the government, and it’s our responsibility to be informed and involved … and to vote.
