Congressman John Delaney of the 6th Congressional District addressed the Woman's Democratic Club of Montgomery County on Tuesday, September 20th, and made quite a strong case for the importance of the 2016 election and how much there is to lose if we, the voters, don't become engaged.
In his remarks the Congressman explained the consequences of a large segment of the electorate losing faith in government and interest in the election process resulting in becoming more and more disengaged. According to the Congressman, progress is made when a large segment of society mobilizes for a common cause. Think the civil rights movement. When “the people” become less engaged in government, it widens the door for the special interests to increase their influence in government.
