Elections might be over but it is still critical that you maintain involvement with your elected officials. There are numerous important issues happening both in the State and at the National level. To quote the incomparable Justin Dart - get involved in politics as if your life depended on it; because it does. If you are uncomfortable calling your officials, send them a note via mail or email. Keep it short, respectful and briefly let them know why the issue is important to you. The more they hear from you, they more they know you are paying attention to what they do. One of the key issues facing Kansas legislators right now is the fact they KNOW they are going to have to raise taxes to take care of the budget crisis. But they are all afraid that key organizations with lots of money are going to go after them when elections roll around again. These organizations aren't even local people! Don't let their voices be heard over yours. Get involved today!
