What an embarrassment!!! I cannot get over how few showed up for the primary election in our town! I am chagrined that so much complacency can occur during an election period. Where were the Republicans? Why so few Democrats? And why (is it because we are so far out the island) is it that hardly anyone I spoke to knew who was running for what? Why are you so apathetic? Do you need an engraved invitation and personally chauffeured vehicle to pick you up to get you to the polls? The November election is less than 2 months away, so you still have time to acquaint yourself with the issues, the track record of the candidates and arrange your day so you can make the 5 minutes it takes to vote. This isn't just a privilege — it is our responsibility.
