The Importance of Communication

March 29, 2011 at 4:53 pm Leave a comment


New Hope City Councilman John Elder wrote an editorial to the Sun Post last week about communicating with our local government. He is right. We’ve got to let them know who we are. The feedback of real names and faces carry more weight. Also, we must take the high road if we want to be effective. Threats never work and they undermine our credibility. 

We know that it can be frustrating to deal with government. We know that often times they decide in work sessions long before we ever hear of it, and they listen, but seldom hear what we say. Keep your head up! Stay engaged!
