In the past, parents in Brookfield have not voted in large numbers. In fact, when we look at the various demographic groups in our own, than any other group.
On Tuesday, May 15, Brookfield residents will have a chance to vote on the proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
I am a Mom to two young children. And I will vote. Will you?
We have so much at stake, but we vote the least.
What happens when we don’t vote? Our priorities are not represented. The things that matter to us, to our families and to our future are sacrificed. It’s been going on so long that it’s almost expected.
But when I talk to other parents, that’s not what I hear any of us want. We want to know what’s happening. We want to speak for our kids.
Now is our chance. And it takes about 10 minutes.
On Tuesday, May 15, join me in voting for Brookfield. If you are not registered to vote, you can get a form here and bring it to the Registrar. If you’re not sure which polling location is for you, check your polling location here.
Like you, I’m a busy parent. But my family needs me to vote just as much as they need me to do the many other things I do each day.
I will vote. Who’s with me? Anyone?
