Our civic duty does not end at the ballot box, regardless of who is in office, it’s our responsibility as constituents to stay engaged in the decisions our elected representatives make.

By staying engaged we hold our representatives accountable and make sure their decisions have our best interests in mind.  We do this by making our voices heard by following their voting record, calling or sending letters, and attending events.
