“Apathy” Triumphs in Local Elections


By Jim Andersen

Someone has to say it!

Less than 1 of 4 adult Suffolk residents went to the polls on Election Day 2013.

Yes, I know everyone is so busy these days checking their iPhones, following their favorite celebrities on Twitter, and watching reality shows…it must be difficult for them to find ten minutes to vote.

But what most people don’t understand is that by watching a reality show that night, they abandoned the reality of being an American citizen.

It’s depressing that the overwhelming majority of our neighbors do not care about themselves or their children when it comes to the future of their communities.
