We're not here right now. But if you leave a message with your name, number and time you called...
I’m sorry, what?
If you live in Philadelphia you will be confronted with three of these questions tomorrow. Question One deals with minimum wage! I encourage people from Philadelphia to head on over to the Committee of Seventy website for the plain-speak versions of these questions along with their translation, and how these issues affect average Philadelphians on a daily basis.
Please Note: You do NOT need Voter I.D. to vote in the 2014 Pennsylvania Primary Election! (May 20, 2014)
The mid-term elections are underway. In Philadelphia, it’s 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 race 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 the 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 two valuable resources that I always turn to in any political cycle,
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!
