In an election process that seems to yield little these days beyond partisan sniping and gridlock. Voters believe our elected officials are beholden not to them, but to the political party bosses and lobbyists. Increasingly, we see major issues go unaddressed. Real challenges are not met. More and more voters are turned off by our government institutions and those elected to lead them. Sadly, more and more highly qualified individuals who would serve us well in elected office choose not to run.
