Politics start close to home. Though you may be interested in politics on the national and international level, it’s important not to lose sight of what goes on at the state, city, and community level. Sometimes, it seems like it’s harder to be involved or stay informed at the state and local levels – most major news sources report on national or international news and it seems like some of us only become aware of local issues when we show up at the polls for a Presidential election (I’m guilty of this too) or when changes get implemented.
Through researching for posts on this blog, I’m hoping to build my own knowledge base for local politics and stay more informed on the policies that directly impact my local community.
Stick with me, and let’s find out what state and local level politics are all about. 🙂
