The Election Is Over, But The Work Isn't

Whether your candidates and causes won or lost on election night, take a deep breath. It's a lot of work participating in democracy and if you are like me, you are a little exhausted. It is now pretty tempting to go into civic hibernation. Instead of waiting to see what happens in our government and community, remain active. Consider the records that have been set in campaign related volunteerism and contributions. There is the real possibility that the organizations that support the most vulnerable in our community were put on the back burner in order for this election to be as rich as it was. Let's keep working and giving and ensure that San Diego county is in even better standing after the election than it was before. I know I'm not alone in this should have seen the crowd of volunteers at the Feeding America food bank project on November 4th!
