Today is our state’s primary election.
It’s absolutely vital for moderates / clear thinkers get out today and cast votes for moderates who will change the direction we’ve been headed for the last six years. Our governor and current legislators are hell-bent on rewarding their rich backers with a zero tax rate, while slashing funds for schools, roads, the poor, children, the arts, the mentally ill – anyone / anything that doesn’t personally benefit them.
Fun Fact: A disproportionately high percentage of Kansas legislators and heads of agencies home school their children/grandchildren. Their efforts to de-fund schools are clearly based on a fundamental dislike / distrust of public education.
So what does this all mean for you, who live half a continent or even half a world away?
Just a reminder that local elections are every bit as important as what’s going on nationally. Local law and policy affect us every day, and we have a responsibility to do all we can to guide it in a direction that helps people rather than harming them.
Wherever you are, get involved.
Little drops of water,
little grains of sand,
make the mighty ocean
and the beauteous land.
