UNITED STATES− It’s the start of a new decade. The year Twenty-Twenty brings with it a whole lot of change and great opportunities to make a change. It’s also a time that could be for some the chance of a lifetime.
If you are one of the many Americans who have grown weary of the constant berating of and fighting against the President of the United States, it’s a new election year. The Democrats in Congress began investigating President Trump in order to undermine the decision and the vote of over 62 million people since the day he took office in January of 2017. For those who did not fight it, and had to endure the constant negativity the struggle was real, but it’s almost over. Now, it’s time to clean house.

Your vote counts. If you are living in one of the Districts in California that may have been overrun with homelessness or otherwise neglected over the past three years while the Mueller investigation and then the impeachment inquiry took your Representatives from your District, you will have the opportunity to cast your vote for someone you feel could do a better job representing your district. On the other hand, if your Congressman was great at the balancing act and your District did not suffer, here is your chance to show your appreciation and vote for your candidate again.
