So going ‘mano a mano’ with any candidate for elected office should allow all registered (and prospective) voters to (if desired or becomes essential) to address issues of concern from all or a few constituents and/or by one constituent no matter how trivial the matter or concern to others or no others. In short, candidates for elected offices should (must) avail themselves to the people with and for mercy’s sake if for none other.
Indian River County citizens/residents, Email your school board candidates and ask them for their comments as to Common Core Standards, school lunches, teachers packing firearms, etc. In our society today there is no need or use for place-holders, figure-heads or tokens. It’s time for everyone to get busy and get all work completely done to the satisfaction of the majority and not a minority faction. Also, pay close attention to the response time of your request as we as the people have waited too long for the progress and prosperity that we have obtained through long suffering, endurance, mercy and grace. We cannot allow incompetence or vanity to stop or hold us back now.
