In the age of COVID-19, we are in time where we can no longer stand on the sidelines when it comes to voting. Today, we need all hands-on deck if we are going to change our City, State, and nation. Therefore, we have to get to be civically engaged on all levels.
As the Publisher of Data News Weekly, we are committed to our brand promise as “The People’s Paper” and this is something we take very seriously. Our goal is to educate, inform and inspire our community to aspire to greatness and progress. To overcome our challenges and I feel together we can make our communities better if we become more involved in change efforts.
On August 15, 2020 there is an election in our City, and we are asking people to get out and vote. We stress this again and again that all elections matter and not going to cast a ballot does have negative consequences for our community.
For our voices need to be heard and the things we need for our community can be placed on the agenda.
November is just around the corner and we will be electing our next President and we must ask ourselves what does our community need? And the way people will know is through our collective act of voting; with this simple act we can have a seat at the table to demand that our issues matter and need to be addressed and made a high priority by those we help elect.
So, in these crucial and critical times Civic Engagement is more important than ever and yes, voting matters.
