Electing County Leaders

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said the arc of history bends toward justice, but it can be a jagged journey.  Don’t be too idealistic about what one politician can achieve, because that may lead you to become cynical about politics. Democracy is messy, with many voices and demands in the mix. Persistence and organizing with others will pay off! A small number of votes can swing a local election.
