With a new legislative session coming up, bills are being written and legislators are forming their goals for the next year, at this very moment.
That means now is a good time to talk with your state legislators, but it’s also a good time for BMG to come together and express our goals and ideas for the next year.
Let’s make that a homework assignment. What one or two things do you want to see done this coming year?
It could be big or small, broad or specific, personal or general, on any issue you want to see addressed. The more kinds of responses people write, the better.
If enough people contribute our priorities and ideas, maybe — just maybe — we can make a small difference, and some of our elected officials will listen.
Once you write your comment, let’s give everyone their space to write what they want and leave replies to comments to answer questions or for legislators, staffers or other state workers to respond, if they’re doing something to work on it.
If there’s anything unique about BMG, it’s all our myriad perspectives and incredibly intelligent and knowledgeable people we have contributing here. Let’s use that to our advantage, and give our legislators a space to see what BMG cares about for this year.
