Your Right to Vote
"Do you shiver in surprise after grants or
programs are taken away from our children, or are you out there
fighting to keep them? When our daycare grant was threatened I wrote

daycare center was threatened I spoke at Village Board meetings."
Seize every opportunity to make a difference in your
child's future. At the November 2002 election

learn about the different political candidates, identify those
candidates that have our children in their hearts and vote for
them at each election.
