Democracy is not a spectator sport! Citizens can not sit back —we must pay attention to what is happening. Social media is not the place to get reporting that has been checked for facts. Social media is filled with biased opinions, misinformation and gossip. There are a lot of legitimate news outlets to chose from.
The Journal Times is one place to start. Local news and events are covered, also state and nation. In the Tuesday, July 11, The Journal Times (5A), there is a quote from a woman who moved to Racine about a year ago. She has already grasped the progress Racine is making toward revitalizing the city. Whereas another person didn’t even know our mayor’s name. There is a price for tuning everything out! When people aren’t paying attention, bad things slip through. Get involved with a group working to make Racine and our nation better.
