To the ed­i­tor:

Elec­tions are around the cor­ner. But our sys­tem of elec­tions, which pro­duces our “gov­ern­ment” and those who make the laws for us, starts with our com­mit­tee peo­ple. They are the ground zero of get­ting neigh­bor­hood peo­ple in­volved in their elec­tion process. I just spent the bet­ter part of a wHHN WUyLnJ WR finG RuW whR my com­mit­tee peo­ple in are — both D and R. Af­ter all this ef­fort, in­clud­ing calls to the top politi­cos of the par­ties, I have the names of two out of four of them. The other two are still a mys­tery. And the re­spon­sive­ness of those “run­ning” the party is as­tound­ing.

Com­mit­tee peo­ple “shouldL­wouldLought to” seek out those who might be in­ter­ested in get­ting in­volved in their gov­ern­ment, in­clud­ing in the process of finGLnJ nHw, YLEUDnW IDFHV to run for com­mis­sioner and other po­si­tions and reach­ing out to peo­ple who care about the is­sues their party is pro­mot­ing.

How many of you know who your com­mit­tee peo­ple are? How many of you have re­ceived a call or a let­ter so
