It's time to Re-invent CCS
Citizens for Common Sense
has for 20 years been a voice in local politics.
About 6 years ago, we expanded into state issues
because they had such a direct impact on our county.
About 4 years ago, we found ourselves in the Tea Party movement
concerned that if our nation did not reduce the size of government to
1) get financially solvent and 2) stop infringing on our rights
then there wouldn’t be any state or county to worry about.
Today, there are many Tea Party groups in St. Joe and Elkhart counties.
Do we need Citizens for Common Sense anymore?
We believe the answer is Yes, because we have a unique role to play
in balancing state, local, and federal issues and holding Meet the Candidate events.
But if we’re going to do this job, we may need to start meeting regularly – perhaps monthly
and designate people to be in charge of scheduling activities, and
most importantly, volunteers to monitor a) federal, b) state and c) local governments
and report back to the group with action items to discuss.
