A call to make voices heard in township

January 05, 2011 - Dear Editor,

Residents of Independence Township, I encourage you to take one hour of your valuable time to attend an Independence Township Board Meeting in 2011.

I know meetings last longer than one hour but each meeting has time for public comments near the beginning. Arrive at 7:30 p.m. in time for the Pledge of Allegiance and then get in line to express yourself.

Share your thoughts about what is right or wrong with your local government. Our representatives need to hear from you.

After the public comments, leave and return home to your family. Use the local cable channel or online at ClarkstonTV.com to view the parts of the meeting that interest you most.

You don't need to attend every meeting. Check out the agenda online. Make a resolution to attend two meetings during 2011.

How great would it be to see a line of citizens willing to share their views on the first and third Tuesdays of each month? Thomas Paine once said: "Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, like men, must undergo the fatigue of supporting it."
