Letter to the Editor – Voting is your voice

Voting is your voice in democracy.

My uncles fought in WWII to oppose dictators bent on the domination of others through brutality.

My uncle Willard, at 19, was at both the Invasion of Normandy and Battle of the Bulge. The suffering and life sacrifices so many have made to keep America and other nations free from tyranny should not be forgotten. Think of the evolution of present and past world dictatorships; the authoritarian tendencies of those in power were ignored or excused until there was no stopping them. Your vote is the most important action you can take to elect public servants who stand for representing their constituents honestly while upholding the rule of law and the Constitution of the United States.

We require new representatives who care about the thousands of unnecessary pandemic deaths and businesses that have closed their doors. Help elect people who can help Northern California to deal with the effects of climate change in our forests and agricultural lands guided by science, compassion and informed decision.

We can choose to elect public servants who will serve American citizens facing actual problems during this real global crisis.

In the act of voting, you exercise the gift of democracy: your voice!

Your vote honors the memory of all those who have fought and died to make this country free.
