Run for a local political committee to have a bigger say in who is endorsed for elected positions

Just a reminder. The local political committees are reorganizing this year. June 5 was the first day to start circulating petitions to run for a town committee. The petitions have to be filed at the board of elections between July 9th and no later than the 12th.

Become a committee member, become involved. Have first say on who will or will not be endorsed for a political office to serve the people in your district. To quote the Greek Philosopher Plato: “If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools.”

Becoming a committee member is more powerful than holding an office. You can change the entire makeup of a board. Run. Run in packs of as many as you can convince to run. Get your petitions at the board of elections and carry it yourself. You won’t get another chance for two years.

Orleans County needs changing and this is how you do it. End the tax, regulate and spend. Make our county a low-tax place to settle in and do business with new leadership.
