The recent presidential election seemed to ignite the country regardless of which party a person supported. There are so many issues, the state of the country, healthcare education etc. One way that you can continue to participate is to learn more about your state and government officials. Most, if not all, governments have a website that lists the name of state and national senators and representatives. These in turn link to the individual government representative’s personal website where there is usually a contact me link with a mailing address, telephone number or email address. Utilizing the email address is usually the most effective way of voicing an opinion. As shown in the last election one person can gather others to make a difference. Begin by participating yourself and then share the information with others. Together we can make a change.
