MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

This week votes will be cast for local, state and national elected leadership positions.  This week political campaign ads on broadcast television stations, cable networks and radio will cease. This week descriptors such as Republican, Democrat, Conservative, Liberal, Right, and Left will be used less often in regular public discourse.

For the past year we've had candidates, not in office, talk about what is wrong with their city, state or country and what they would do to fix it.  Those in office tell of the ongoing improvements, progress and the current path towards a better future if we just leave things the way they are.

Each side in all races has articulated passionately and some even intelligently why they are right for the job.  This week it's up to us, the voters, to finally decide.  Those who convinced us they have the right plan, vision and competency to get the job done will get our vote.  Those that did not should respectfully concede to the victor and help them in any way to improve their city, state or country.

A favorite quote of mine is "Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it."  Winners take note and get plenty of rest because we must be successful in all things and there is much work to be done.
