By: Donna McBride

There was never a question of whether I should register to vote or not - it was just the right thing to do when I turned 18 years old.  I realize that was a long time ago when politics was very different.  But the foundation is still the same. It is our constitutional right. And yes, an obligation.

Maybe you haven't registered because you think that's the easiest way to avoid politics. Avoiding politics just isn't possible because decisions  will be made with or without you.  You still have to pay taxes even if you don't vote. Elected officials make decisions about which streets to fix, trash and sewer fees or community centers being built. Your input is valuable to them as they make those decision.

By voting, you can make the system better. It may never be perfect, but improving the system is possible. Elected officials need you. 

Come August 30th, candidates will need you, especially those of us running for local positions like city council.  I'm not afraid to admit it,  I need you. One vote, one opinion. You matter.

(August 30th election deadline is August 1st)

"The council is tasked to be fiscally responsible. That being said, the council must be fair to both its employees and the taxpayers. I believe those who work daily to provide our community with quality customer service is also a good investment." 

-Donna McBride

Making an informed decision at the ballot box can feel like a daunting task, especially when considering the number of candidates running for office this year. Casa Grande resident, Martin Diano, tells the Casa Grande Dispatch: 

"I’m fortunate this election cycle. My decision for whom to vote is an easy one. There’s a candidate among the 10 that numerous local leaders have personally advised me they are supporting and urged that I do the same. But, to be clear, that’s least among the reasons why I am supporting one particular candidate this year. Enter Donna McBride. From her work on the Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism to the Casa Grande Elementary School Capital Improvement Committee to the Casa Grande Alliance (against drugs), to name just a few, Donna embodies what it means to be an effective and devoted public servant."
