We care about our city, it’s basically our name. We’re concerned about issues surrounding growth, air and quality of life, just like you are. So consider this:
- Those who are in office, won their positions as such because they received the most votes.
- The elected officials who most directly affect your day-to-day life are up for election right now. City elections are often decided by small margins because folks don’t take the time to vote.
- Don’t be these folks.
Author and researcher Brené Brown frequently quotes a famous speech that Teddy Roosevelt gave in 1910. In it, he said:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.”
Basically, don’t sit on the sidelines, the most vocal critics of officials, laws or “what’s wrong” didn’t vote or take the time to think about their votes. If you don’t know anything about those listed on your current ballot, it may serve us all better if you did. This helpful article in the Salt Lake Tribune is a good start. Don’t leave that ballot un-cast.
