And now the work begins

The election is over.  It doesn’t matter now if your candidate won or lost, what matters is what you do with your time until the next election.  Will you moan and whine because you did not get your way?  Or perhaps you are celebrating because your candidate won!  Your work is just beginning.

Our elected officials rarely hear from the general public.  They hear from lobbying groups all the time, and they do not want to believe what these groups tell them.  They want to hear from you.  Stay informed.  Write letters, send e-mails, make phone calls, tell your elected representatives what you believe.  Even if you did not vote for them, talk to them!  If enough people like you let them know what you want, they will listen.  If you do not stay in contact, you will get something you do not want.

The election is over, now the real work begins.
