As an elected official, it probably makes sense that I am passionate about democracy and public service. (Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t have run for office, right?)
Perhaps my early engagement learning about our government at Girl’s State is what sparked my pubic service interest. But it’s watching the process of government and seeing how few people vote, that fuels me today. As folks that know me well can tell you, I been an “active” participant in the electoral process – reminding my family, neighbors, friends and constituents about the importance of voting.
