I have heard it so many times while out campaigning in Pasco that people want things to change. They tell me that they are tired of being ignored by their elected officials but they have no idea what to do to change that. So I talk to them about why voting matters. I hear from people all that time that they do not vote for many reasons. Some of those reasons are that there is nothing in their lives effected by Politics, or that they do not relate to the candidates, or they do not believe that voting effects change. I talk to them about all of the things that are legislated that directly effect their lives. They often seem stunned and never thought about any of these things before.
Energizing people and getting them involved is very important when it comes to making change happen. I enjoy talking to the people of Pasco County. It is a great way to educate them about what is going on, and to get them involved in the process. As we continue to do our canvassing events, we get more people out every time to work on changing the face of politics in Pasco. Grassroots efforts do work and they are a great way of reaching the people. To me what matters are the people of Pasco. They are the one’s that deserve a voice in politics and they are the one’s that deserve to be represented.
I have been actively encouraging people to register to vote in Pasco, because every voice matters. I believe that the only way to effect a change is to get people out to vote. The people that are tired of a government that does not listen to them. The people that are tired of corporations and millionaires telling them what they believe is best in their lives. This is one of the many reasons that I am running for County Commissioner in District 4 and I hope to be the start of a great change for Pasco County.
