YOU CAN. YOU SHOULD. And hopefully, YOU WILL consider running for public office!
Our government is to be OF the people, BY the people, FOR the people. In order to make our country work for us, we must insert more, diverse, representative voices into the equation, maintain a presence at the decision-making tables, lead and affect change from within as well as beyond the political arena – at the local, state and federal levels. The times call upon us to engage civically – and don't count out running for public office yourself!
