Voter Feedback

Recently, I sent out a survey to voters in my district to ask them what issues are most important to them.  I believe government works best when it responds to the people and that as citizens we have a duty to be actively engaged in Democracy.  There has been tremendous feedback from the survey.  I am deeply impressed by the depth and thoughtfulness of the responses I have received.  Every day on this blog I will post an interesting idea a constituent has sent in.  We welcome your thoughts.
