Patsy Keever is responsive, and that's the difference between her and the incumbent. That's why I'm voting for her as a N.C. House 115 constituent.
Public officials need to be more responsive today than ever. Or they need to have a plan for responding to constituent issues. Two-way communication is a critical aspect of representative democracy. I am voting for Patsy Keever because she responded to my question about a particular government issue.
Unnecessary noise pollution creates a significant amount of stress for North Carolina's citizens — indeed, for people around the world. Particularly obnoxious are privately owned vehicles illegally modified to be louder than state and federal laws permit. The story behind why this phenomenon exists is an example of where our sense of community standards and government role need to be reformed. Few politicians seem interested in this baseline issue, yet Keever is.
Patsy's Web site has five key-issue points. Her incumbent has four. What is Patsy's fifth issue area? Equal rights for all citizens. I think that is an important theme that, when omitted, leaves her incumbent wanting.
Whatever the level of urgency, our social environment still has many areas requiring reform. Being unresponsive to both minimum, baseline citizen issues, and to the more critical areas of high-level justice, leaves a question mark on her incumbent. We are, after all, human beings, and our needs are integral to economic and environmental agendas.
