September happens to be a great month to begin something new, to recommit to prior tasks or assignments, and to refocus. September marks the beginning of fall (only for East Coasters, lol); school for many children; football season; and the beginning of the new year for my Jewish friends. I also thought that it was significant to re-launch Law, Politics, and Change(LPC) this month. September is my favorite month of the year, and the political scene has been HOT, interesting, and relevant over the last nine months. I felt that this was the best time to hop in, and talk about some of the issues.
In an effort to re-introduce, Law, Politics, and Change it is imperative that I give a brief history lesson on LPC’s humble beginnings. I began LPC with the intention and desire to inform, educate, empower, and engage both politicos and those aspiring to become more involved in the political process by creating thought-provoking and informative content. Also, it was my desire to bring folks into the world of political compliance, policy, lobbying, and legislation.
The purpose and goal of LPC remains the same. It will remain a space where I desire to invoke thoughtful conversations and discussions about politics on a local, state, and federal level, and to help others understand how REAL and RELEVANT politics is in our lives. I have LOTS of new content that I will be adding daily, including discussing policy, political campaign compliance and ethical concerns, new laws and updates within the campaign world among other things.
Politics is culture, and it permeates every realm, from the C-suite to the football field it is present. Most of us have an opinion and there are many individuals who give voice to politics. Our democratic values and First Amendment protections make the dialogue and discourse much more interesting, raw, and candid. So, welcome once again to LPC, and come to be informed, engaged, and to share your thoughts in this space. Visit often and regularly and comment too. Engagement in this space is essential.
Lastly, Today is National Voter Registration Day! This is a holiday where we can celebrate democracy, voting, and voting rights. Today marks the 5th year that the holiday has observed. If you aren’t registered to vote, or want to learn more about the holiday, visit www.nationalvoterregistrationday.org. Also, spend today finding out who your elected officials are and what local, state, and federal legislative districts you live in. Know those numbers and those you represent you!
