We need to end the tired debate between Franklin Roosevelt’s big government will solve all of our problems and Ronald Reagan’s government isn’t the solution, it is the problem. Instead, we need to embrace Big Citizenship.
Big Citizenship means getting people involved in politics to undo decades of gridlock. We need people to participate in movements that make change. We need a new era in government which recognizes that change comes from the bottom-up, not the top-down.
Big Citizenship means fostering new partnerships with the public sector, the private sector, and the non-profit sector, because to solve our nation’s problems, we need to get all hands on deck.
Our campaign will be citizen-led, citizen-energized, and citizen-financed-that is why it will be successful. Over the course of this campaign I hope to meet you and share my vision for our Commonwealth and our country.
My website went live today and I hope you will visit it at www.alanforsenate.com. Most importantly, I hope we have the chance to meet so that I can hear your ideas about how we can seize opportunities and meet the challenges that face our Commonwealth and our country.
Thank you for your interest in this election and I hope you will consider getting involved.
