Get out.. and VOTE!

Today is voting day in Great Barrington and Housatonic. For any of you readers in this area, I want to encourage you to get out and vote.

Many times, voters turn out only for what is considered "major" elections. (i.e. presidential, senate seats, etc.) What you need to think about is that the people that we elect to run our local government is just as important... actually, it is more so. The jobs our locally elected officials do directly impacts our lives on a daily basis. So please, do yourself a favor and vote.

I will be heading to the polls around lunchtime to vote for Jim Bashour, who is running for Selectman. Mr. Bashour is well known in our small community for his dedication to our town. I know he is the right choice for the job.

Voting isn't a right... it's a great privilege. Don't take it for granted. Do it today or as I have always said in the past... You have no right to complain.
