Presidents Message – March

President’s Message – March

At last month’s meeting, a really important point came up in our discussion. We were discussing the importance of holding our electeds accountable, and the point was made that just because we endorse someone, doesn’t mean they get our blind support. In fact, just the opposite. Our endorsement means two main things, to me: 1) stronger accountability and 2) hard work on our part. And these things go hand in hand.

The candidates that we endorse must be held to a higher standard, and it’s both our job to hold them to that and for them to stay open in listening to us. A candidate who seeks our endorsement and then never shows up again is not someone we want to be supporting. And it’s up to us to make our endorsement mean something on the hard work front. Petitioning is fun, but it’s feet on the pavement work. Candidates seek our endorsement, remember that. They come to us because they know that a CBID endorsement means something, and it’s up to us to hold that standard up.

You’ll notice this month there are events and petition days all centered around that. We’ll have a lot of petition days for various candidates, so please take a look and come out on whichever days you can so we can collect those signatures. We’ll have a meet and greet with Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, an informal way to ask our Congresswoman the questions we need to ask. We’ll march with our fellow high school allies in the March for Our Lives. We’ll also have some events that are just for fun! Yes, sometimes we can let our hair down, meet up for some good ole fashioned karaoke fun.

The point is – let’s stay active this month and keep what makes CBID so special stronger together. There is a long road ahead of us – the budget being passed, Congressional Primaries, State Primaries, and then General Elections – so stay focused, stayed rested, and always reach out for help or questions. No one person is going to do all of this alone, there’s simply just too much to do. Bring a friend, split up the work, and rely on each other and we’ll keep pushing forward.

Onward
