The mid-term elections are underway. Pennsylvania’s primary is Tuesday the 20th of May. Contrary to what some may have you believe, mid-term elections are just as important as, if not more than, the presidential elections.
In September of 2012 I asked if it was possible that the GOP threw the Presidential election to focus on local races instead. Why else would they give us Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney? Are they that out of touch?
Most of the damage is done during midterm elections. I believe wholeheartedly that it’s because people think the President has sweeping power to do as he wishes. I don’t think people get how important these midterms are.
Take a look at what’s going on around the States and tell me if you feel the same.
So, to make it easier, here are a few valuable resources that I always turn to in any political cycle,
The National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL)
and here in Pennsylvania…
The Committee of Seventy
Pay attention folks. There’s a lot to lose in local elections.
Now go out and VOTE!
