Let us not forget that along with the importance of the referendum vote there should also be the recognition of the many veterans who fought and gave their lives to secure our freedom and for the right to vote. Their ultimate sacrifice gives each individual the freedom to make a choice and have a voice. At no time, in any level of government should there ever be a concession or direct action to have this right taken away.
As residents of the Town of Bethlehem it is important to take the time to observe and question when necessary the actions or lack thereof from our elected officials. Recent media coverage of our town should lead us all to recognizing in November 2013 there needs to be a change in our elected officials – it is up to each and every one of us to exercise our right to vote and make that change happen. God Bless America!
