We must vote to safeguard future

I give you two quotes which exemplify our position. The first is from George Nathan: "Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote." The second is from Plato: "Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber."

Life and sport are so closely aligned we could learn well from the sporting maxim of doing the basics right and trusting that the goals, tries and medals will follow. We must engage and we must vote to ensure our children's future.
