This is the Time

“We have been too quiet for too long.

There comes a time when you have to say something.

You have to make a little noise.

You have to move your feet.”

——— Congressman John Lewis

Neither freezing temperatures nor sweltering heat, sleet, snow, rain, wind, long lines, men or women with guns pointed at us, a pandemic or any other hindrance should be able to prevent us from moving our feet to our precincts to VOTE on Tuesday, November 3rd.


Stay safe,  stay sane, stay cool – and please stay tuned.
