Without choice there is no discussion
There are seven positions up for election in Summit County government this November. All candidates were running unopposed. This isn’t right. When that happens, there is no cause for debate. There is no reason for discussion about our issues. Fewer new ideas are generated. There is no change.
By running, I hope at a minimum to provide some discussion about our issues. I hope I can make people at least consider that there are alternatives to the way things are now.
I just appreciate that I live in a country where I do have the chance to run for an office. I feel like I shouldn’t squander that opportunity.
