About a year ago, I realized that there were some things that needed to change with my local city. I was really frustrated with some of the changes that people were talking about making, so I started going through and thinking carefully about what to do. I realized that since there was an upcoming election, I could run for office and potentially make a big difference. I started getting involved and thinking carefully about what to do, and it made a big difference. Even though I didn't win, I felt like making a blog about government and politics could help people to get involved with the issues.
