To the Editor: Participate in the political process

December 29, 2010

This is an open invitation to everyone in Rockford area and beyond to come out over the course of the new year 2011 and become active and engaged in the political process.

Vote and encourage others to do the same in the local elections in February and April.

Talk to the people you come across in your daily life who have a question about current events and try to inform and explain things to them as best you can.

Grab a couple of friends off the couch and attend a tea party meeting or event (Rockford Tea Party meeting, Jan. 11, 2011, 5:30 p.m., Rockford Public Library downtown).

Say you did something to take part in the life of our nation in 2011.

Ulysses S. Arn

Ashton, Ill.

From the Dec. 29-Jan. 4, 2011 issue

    Sounds like it’s time to make a difference in our local elections. We cannot continue to accept the current debt and must make a change to become fiscally responsible.
