We are in unprecedented times. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our communities cannot be overstated. Doing things "the old way" is no longer an option as we seek to reunite, grow and thrive in the new world around us. Bringing our communities back together and learning from what the pandemic has taught us requires new skills, new connections, new and innovative thinking. We want to be a strong and independent community, we want to take the best of what we've learned and bring more of it. We cannot afford to go back to the old ways of doing things, so let's make sure our votes reflect going forward, not backward. So... what does that mean?
