Calling all Voters!

There was a low turnout of voters in last week’s September 2 election.  I’m proud to say that I was one of the few American citizens who exercised her right to vote.  Many did not even know there was an election going on.  Despite a busy schedule, I went to the polling place to vote to influence the future of our nation and the City of Chandler, where I am a resident.

I was particularly interested in influencing the outcome of the three open City Council positions for the City of Chandler.  There are six candidates for the positions.  I watched the six answer questions at an excellent open round table discussion hosted by the City and aired on Cable Channel 11.  Based on this telecast, I voted for Matt Orlando, Rick Heumann and Jack Sellers.  However, after the votes were tallied, all cadidates where short of the required minimum of 50% vote, so the process will be repeated again in the Primary election in November 2008 — thanks to all of you who did not show up!

It is sad that many of our countrymen would rather attend a sports event and pay lots of money to do so than to visit a polling place to bring about change.  The future of our nation is in our hands.  And one person can make a difference!  Just as the once successful singer Michael Jackson said in his song: “If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a CHANGE!”

Now is your chance to make a change — take the chance before it’s too late. On November 4, when you cast your vote, vote YES on Proposition 100 – “Protect Our Homes.” A YES vote means saying NO to establishing a real estate transfer tax in Arizona.

If you don’t show up to vote, be ready to pay a real estate transfer tax in the near future.
