Having said that, in no other arena will a vote make more impact than at the local-government level. For one thing, the electorate is smaller, so every vote carries more weight. Even more significant, no other level of government affects you more directly than than the local level. Your mayor and city council are responsible for the streets you drive every day, the utilities that feed your home with energy, and the services your family will need in an emergency.
This is your opportunity, your privilege to particpate. Please cast your vote April 7. —DR
