Government will always be imperfect. But the good news is that means that we can continuously aim for great improvements. Some ideas are simple, like converting to electronic payment systems. Other ideas, like adopting changes to the criminal justice system, or reforming the way we care for the mentally ill, take time and community input, but move us all forward in the end. This is why I will continue to send out surveys, hold public listening sessions, and attend events in our community. We can do better, working together!
