I would like to encourage all people to vote.
We, as Americans, spend our time and lives with our representatives that we have voted for and as soon as they are in office we whine about their shortcomings.
I am happy to say that my councilman has done a lot for Abbeville in so many different ways. Mr. Jim Grant has, in my opinion, done a great job for us and I will vote for him in the upcoming elections.
For those who are not sure how to vote or what to look for in their position, take a look at the things they have done and what they stand for. Do they stand for the things that would make you proud?
Our town and our country should be places we are proud of every day of our lives. Voting gives us the right to have opinions on how it is run. By not voting, you have given up this right completely.
All voices matter in our country, be it black or white. No one voice is any better than any other. This is God’s country and will be so until the end of time.
