"Discussions are always better than arguments, because an argument is to find out who is right, and a discussion is to find what is right."

Grab your Crescent and read the full article! This is a pivotal moment for the Village! Do we stop managing the Village and become tenants? Do we continue to struggle year to year trying to maintain the historic buildings there with no regular funding? Or do we finally set a realistic path for the Village's future? Please share.

November 5th is coming!
Representative democracy is a form of government in which the people elect officials to create laws and policy on their behalf. A single elected official represents the desires of a large number of people.When people are confident that they have a say in their government's decisions, they are more likely to remain aware of issues affecting their country and to vote as a way of making their opinions on those issues heard. The votes of elected officials in a representative democracy may not always reflect the will of the people. The officials are not bound by law to vote the way the people who elected them want them to vote. In the final analysis, a representative democracy should truly result in a government that is created “by the people, for the people.” However, its success in doing so depends on the people’s freedom to express their wishes to their representatives and the willingness of those representatives to act accordingly. Please remember to vote!
