It has been a trying voting season but what really got to me were all the attacks from one candidate to another. I think what the voters like myself would have been more interested in would have been more discussions on the issues.
We needed to hear more about how they would correct the mess in Albany and create more jobs and improve education. I did vote on Tuesday because I still believe in our Democratic process and believe real change can come only when we the people are involved.
If our elected officials aren't doing the right thing, we the people can vote them out. You see in a real democracy we can do just that. Isn't Democracy a beautiful thing?
