Here’s a plea for voters to go to the polls and push the button for somebody. Anybody.
It’s courtesy of Shelby County Commissioner Mike Ritz, who we think, at the end of the day, quite frankly has a way with words. (There are a few Mike-isms in that sentence).
He told his Facebook followers if you don’t early vote or vote on Aug. 5, “you lose your right for the next four years to complain in person, by slow mail or email or Twitting or Facebook about anything to do with County government or state government or federal government. For some of us that is like pulling our tongue out and freezing our brain. So no excuses, VOTE. Thanks.”
