As we round the bend to Election Day, it is clear that the people of our region have come together to engage in our country’s democratic process like never before. We celebrate those who have stepped up to be considered for public office, those who are turning out in record numbers to vote, and those who signed up to work at our polling places.

As civic organizations working to serve the common good, we are used to seeing people come together—some in need, and others in service—but all with a generosity of spirit. And, we see so many benefits when they do, particularly in the strengthening of the well-being of the people of our region.

What can we do to bolster the culture and the practice of working together to meet the formidable challenges of our day despite our differences? If we can vote together, we can work together, and the bonds we strengthen and the bridges we build will define us for generations to come. As organizations built on enduring missions to serve you, we are committed to working with you towards a better tomorrow, for all.
