The Day After

Well, we made it through the Presidential Primary.

It was great to see so many of you take an interest and carry the flag for your chosen candidate.

The energy and excitement was palpable. We could feel the tension in the air and hear it in your voices.

Please don't let it die.

Up next we have the Federal Primary in June, in which we vote for U.S. Senators and Members of Congress.

After that we have the state and local primary in September, where we vote for State, County, Town and Village officials.

Local votes have local impact.

Local elected officials matter the most to our daily lives.

These are people you can meet and get to know. Hands you can shake, work with, sweat beside to get things done in our own communities.

They are not political celebrities, and (most of them) can't rally 5000 people to the Arena or the Events Center at Binghamton University.

They are hardworking public servants.

They need our support and volunteerism more than the Presidential candidates did.

Please don't let your fire go out.

Stay involved.

Be Local.
