… I appreciate the effort. Tonight the state representative of our district rang our door bell and talked with me on our porch. He asked about the things that matter to our family and why we vote the way we vote. He listened, he told us that he was now, and would continue to be, responsive to the needs of the people in his district, and asked if he could count on our vote. I told him he couldn’t but we would at least consider what he had to say.
A lot of cynicism fades away when people actually talk with one another.
