Someone once said, “You’re only as strong as your weakest link.” While that applies to many aspects of life, when it comes to our inspired form of representative government it has never been truer. Because government, at all levels, is too big and bureaucratic, many feel lost and that they don’t have a voice. As a result, they sit on the sidelines, don’t engage and don’t vote. That’s not the American or the Utah way. Your voice does matter, it does count, and it can be heard. Let’s work together making our community and state even stronger than ever. Together, we can make a difference.
