As we are in the first hours of this new year, my wish is for everyone to have a prosperous one. Let us remember that as a new administration gets ready to take office, we also have an obligation to make our nation a better place to live.
All politics is local and within our locality, let us commit to change the dialogue from negative to positive. Let us talk about vision instead of division. I am excited about the possibility of real change coming into being and will do my small part to help bring that change about.
As the preacher said last night in watch service, "In 2009, let us put the past behind."
