GLCCA Board Members Share Why They Vote
As the Covid pandemic continues to impact the industry and our own personal lives, the upcoming presidential election seems more important than ever. We asked our board members to share their personal take on why they vote.
“I vote because good government matters. Vote to protect and preserve this great democracy we have for our children and grandchildren.”Skip Herbert
“Voting, when done properly, requires an honest self-assessment and questioning of who you are and what is important to you. It also requires a study of our shared humanity as a country and our place in the world. Our ability to freely make this assessment and use the information to influence the way our tax dollars are spent is why I vote.”Chris Becker
“Government, and to a greater degree, in today’s society even politics itself impacts every aspect of your life in some way. While it is cliché, every vote matters. What is important is that you have knowledge of politics so you can be an informed voter—make it count!”Pauline Kussart
“There’s an old adage – “The world is run by those who show up.” This is never truer than with voting.
Everyone doesn’t vote. In fact, a large percentage of eligible voters don’t vote. So those who do vote have an “out-sized” impact on the results of elections. Be one of those people who count!
Voting is your chance to make your voice heard.
Search your core values and find candidates who line up with what you believe is best for you, our state and our country. And then vote. And urge your family members, friends and colleagues to vote as well.
Make YOUR voice heard.”Michael Klutho
“I vote because voting is an opportunity for change. I also vote because if I don’t, I am giving up my voice and communities need voices.”Ryan Matrisch
If you haven’t already voted early or via absentee ballot, we urge you to get out and exercise your right to vote on November 3rd!
