Election over, but no time for complacency

January 25, 2023

I'm hoping I'm wrong, but some elected people only represent one side of the coin, and possibly don't want to consider those who might have a different side of the coin. I do not believe that any of us are bona fide type cast. Depending on what the issue is, we fall all over the political spectrum.

Now that the election is well over, and those we elected are meeting at our local level, the state capital and or the federal capital. They need and should hear from us. So I'm asking all to politely to get hold of our elected officials, regardless of whether you voted for them.

Let them know what is going on in our lives, your dreams, hopes, concerns and ideals. It doesn't matter whether our political, faith and/or ideology lines up with those we send off to represent us. We are their constituents. They represent us.

It is essential we keep in touch with our elected officials throughout the year. We can communicate with our elected officials by e-mail, letter and phone. I'm sure there are other means as well.

We won't have a primary and or general election until 2024. When a candidate is elected, they represent many and various constituents. So I encourage one to keep themselves informed on what is going on—by using more than one source.

Yes, I'm planning to e-mail my elective officials. As constituents, it doesn't end on election day.
