It is a new year and we all can do our best to make 2019 a year to remember. We put away our Christmas decorations for another year. We started to use all the wonderful gifts that Santa brought us. Now we need to see what we can do to make 2019 a better year.

Can we have a difference of opinion and still respect the other opinion?

Do we follow in blind faith that our tax dollars are managed in the best way possible?

Are our schools producing an education that our children can compete in today’s working world?

Are our children safe in school?
