I did not see this under any other chat so I started it so those who were working on the Public Service badge would have a place to post! I understand we need to keep it non-partisan, which is a great way to discuss the current issue in a non-argumentative way. So let the open communication begin!
To earn the beginning level for this badge we are supposed to report what we have learned and I had served on our small town(600population) alderman board for 4 years. What I learned is that it really is up to the people, even being on a board our hands were mostly tied by money flow and money flow was always in the hands of the community and whether or not they wanted something to happen.
I know it is most important to get out and vote in all elections big or small, it really does make a difference.
So true Carmen. As American citizens, this is the thing that matters most. To vote is a privilege we shouldn’t take for granted. It should be a well informed vote though. Not believing everything you hear, but to do your own research.
