It is rare in life when one is afforded the opportunity of a do-over and even more so in politics. What if you were given an outlook of tomorrow and saw nothing but divided communities? What if you witnessed more rising crime and disorder and a gradual decline in your favorite local businesses? Would you continue down that path?
Better yet, would you vote for that future?
It is often asked in politics – are you better off today than you were 4 years ago? How about 8 years ago? 12? After decades of governing at the behest of special interest and the well-connected, can you say that you have gotten what you voted for? Are your families safer? Are our schools growing?
