Elected need to take jobs seriously
Placeholder Image
Editor, With the new election cycle upon us, political candidates are vying for voters’s confidence with popular “issues,” wholehearted promises, and contemplative discussion of societal/community ills. It is a transparent strategy.
What counts this election is simply this: “What can you actually do for us, the Average Joe?” Promises are easy to blurt out to garner favor, but can our elected actually get the job done?
Politics is a cutthroat power base with personal ambition enveloping even the best-intentioned candidate! My only hope is that those whose voter confidence has been invested take the awesome responsibility seriously. After all, civil servant means just that — “servitude” in the best interests of all the people.
