MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Final Letterhead for Website-01.png

Social Security. Medicare. Voting rights. History has proved that when we elect people who have great vision – that is, real leaders – we accomplish great things.

In the 1970’s, one day I was driving in New York with a colleague from Brazil. We could not see Manhattan from Queens, so bad was the air. My friend said, “In Sao Paulo they told me to come to America where there is pollution control.”  A few years later the air cleared, and water got cleaner because we had passed environmental protection legislation. Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower brought us the Interstate Highway System. Making America Greater used to be a shared, bi-partisan goal.

Like today, back then some Americans were more focused on their personal gain than on the good. Like today, these people try to distract and demoralize us with “culture war issues.”

As another former Republican – Spiro Agnew – said, “In the United States today, we have more than our share of the nattering nabobs of negativism.” But we must keep our focus on the positive. Let’s not let the naysayers and dividers turn us back.  Let’s focus on facts, truth, and the path of the common good. And vote!

Sincerely,

Ed Sabol, President

Longboat Key Democratic Club
