I believe the best way that a citizen can be involved in their community is by keeping in contact with their legislators. I encourage everyone to research their local legislator to see what the issues that he/she stand for and communicate with them. I work for the 103rd district and I would love to hear your opinions on how to make this community better for everyone.
