Election Day 2014...
It's only our Township Advisory Board, in a Township with less than 800 votes cast (not bad for 2125 total residents, including children)...but i'd like to commend my wife for stepping up to run for public office. And tonight, i've had the privilege of congratulating her not only for being elected, but also being the top vote getter. Yea Sue!!
Now i have to keep myself out of trouble at the Fire Dept--she could fire me!! (it's a volunteer dept so getting fired could actually be a financial gain. Would definitely save a lot of time!!)
I'm grateful to live in a nation that allows us the opportunity to have a voice in the selection of our leaders. May not be a perfect system, but it's far better than many nations have.
