Four Reasons to Vote

vote

Are you ready to vote?

We believe at The Gravely Group that decisions are made by those who show up. Our country is a beacon of liberty for the rest of the world. It is time to stand up and be counted. We will never express our political opinions on this blog, but we want to articulate the importance of voting. Here are just a few reasons to get out the vote this Tuesday:

Voting this Tuesday sets a positive example to your children, your neighbors and your friends.
Americans tend to respect others who take the time to assist in the decisions of their neighborhoods. We proudly wear our “I Voted” stickers for the whole day after voting.

It’s your money
The county commissioners, governor, state officials, legislators, president and members of Congress you vote for will decide how much of our wealth to invest in public services and how to fairly share the tax burden. They need to hear your voice.

It’s your neighborhood.
The elected officials and judges you vote to retain make daily decisions about crime prevention, laws and law enforcement, safe and affordable homes, traffic patterns, where to put schools, parks and recreation.

It’s your children’s education.
You elect local and state school board members who set public education policy and budgets that will affect how well prepared your children and grandchildren will be for the future. Decisions by our legislators, governor, members of Congress and president also affect the public schools, Head Start and the quality and cost of higher education as well.

When we participate in the democratic process of our country, we ensure our children’s future. We at The Gravely Group have confidence in this saying by H. Jackson Brown Jr. “Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you.” Please vote this Tuesday!
