This is important: What’s your plan for next Tuesday?
Posted by: Kevin B. Gilnack, Campaign Manager
Next Tuesday, Nov. 6, we get to have our say on who will represent us in the White House, in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives, and in the state legislature.
These officials will make important decisions about funding for the human service programs that keep our communities strong and wages needed to support our skilled human services workforce.
We know that you're busy, but it's important for you to have a plan for when you will get to the polls to make sure you have the opportunity to help shape our future -- and if you have clients, consumers, or program participants who may need help, please assist them too. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m., so start thinking now about when you'll be able to get out and vote. If you're not sure where to vote, you can find out at www.wheredoivotema.com.
Politicians pay attention to who votes and who does not. For The Caring Force to continue to build power and foster support for human services, we need to get to the polls.
As a nonpartisan advocacy organization, we encourage you to learn about the people running for office and make your own decisions. We hope that you will vote for people that believe in "empowering people, strengthening human services," including legislators who have supported the Salary Reserve and candidates who have made human service issues a priority in their campaign.
Your voice is critical to the success of The Caring Force, and by taking part in the voting process you help empower the entire human services sector. Let us know we can count on you to be a part of this important process:
Be sure to help amplify our power by forwarding this message along to your friends, family, and colleagues!
Thank you for being a voter and encouraging others to get involved.
