Election Day

Those who follow politics or read the paper know that today is Election Day.  For what?  There are two unopposed Trustee seats up for re-election and only two candidates.  One candidate is a Valley Stream mom.  So why vote if the two candidates are going to win anyway?  It's all about the numbers.  The numbers in each election district let officials know who voted, where the votes are coming from, and votes = power.  You may think your vote doesn't matter as much this time around but don't forget that there is an election n November and candidates will definitely take notice.

You may also know that the two candidates running are part of the United Community Party.  What is that?  It's a team of both Republicans and Democrats who run jointly here in Valley Stream, like in last year's election, to bring somewhat of a balance.  Well, not exactly but almost.  The team is running pretty well and with the voice of a woman on the board, we women know that we at least have one female voice of reason.  In my opinion, it would be great to have more women in government on every level, but that's a different blog post for another day.

Go vote.  Take your kids with you.
