"Politics and government are complicated and messy...
I've got better things to do."
This is something we all hear from many people. We hear this from our friends, family, even strangers on the bus.
But it doesn't have to be that way. Getting a handle on politics is easier than you think.
We get it, politics and government can be overwhelming when you first start to get into it. Federal, state, and local levels all have their own ins and outs. It's easy to become confused and want to give up and settle in for a nice Netflix binge.
But it is our responsibility as citizens to keep our government accountable for what needs to get done. Without our oversight the ugly parts of human nature overgrow and choke an otherwise healthy and well-functioning democracy.
Knowledge is power and we aim to help demystify government so that you can feel confident when you take on the issues you support. A well-informed citizen is a strong citizen, they're a citizen that steps up to the plate when they're needed.
Together, we can make a lasting impact on our community and the communities around us. But that doesn't happen unless you know what you're doing. So let's get to it, shall we?
