Meet Cliff.  This dedicated volunteer took post outside (It was really cold!) of Pennbrook Middle school all day in order to represent his party.  I caught him fixing one of the signs that had become detached and was swaying in the wind.  Some electric tape should do the trick.  I thought, nothing says dedication down to the letter like taking the time to repair these ephemeral signs.  I really respect that about the thousands of people who show up to make our elections flow and function.  Regardless of party affiliations we all show up for the same reason, a deep belief in something and an appreciation for the ability to express that.  Democracy will never be perfect, being made up of human beings, but it is a wonderful thing.
