Political ADVOCACY is distinguishable from PARTISAN advocacy in that we want ALL citizens, members or not, to be involved in the political process. We are NOT recommending that they be involved on behalf of particular parties or candidates, although we will present information about candidates' positions on issues that matter to us and information about how to become better informed and how to become more involved in the political process.
We also recommend that citizens be aware of the corruption of the budgeting process by the current (as of 2016) G.O.P. incumbents, who use that process to pass POLICY changes as a part of a BUDGET bill in the DARK of night with NO PUBLIC DEBATE OR OVERSIGHT! Witness the change in Section 32 (Eminent Domain) that revised the wording from "corporation" to "business entity" so that it now includes ENBRIDGE LLP (a limited partnership) that operates four pipelines running the length of the state and is seeking to add a FIFTH!

One of the ways that people can be more involved in the political process is by defending local governments in the face of power grabs by state and federal officials! Please see HELP SAVE LOCAL CONTROL! for more information!
