Frankly, every year we hear from citizens disgruntled with government and anxious for change. What rarely results from this is a devoted participation in public service.
Whether at the local, state, or federal level, we cannot expect government to change for the better as we envision it without our participation in government's institutions. Voting is the most fundamental way of participating. When we feel government has failed us, what excuse do we have to complain if we do not at that moment devote ourselves to an aspect of public service to bring about positive change?
We don't have any excuse.
