In November, we all will be asked to elect a new leader for our country.

The 2012 election

Chairman’s Message


By

In November, we all will be asked to elect a new leader for our country, as well as members of Congress. We also will be asked to elect local members in our state, along with school board members. All of these people will be asked to represent all of our best interests in business as well as with our families.

In the national election, we are being asked to stay the course and stick with the way things have been for the last four years; or to elect someone who thinks he can make a change for the better. I ask you the same question that has been asked of you already: Are you better off now than you were four years ago?

There will be many important issues that will threaten our existences in business. Estate taxes, energy positions and health care are just a few. Whomever you elect, you will empower this person to change your business as you now know it. Let’s pick someone who will change things to make things better.

I encourage each of you to get involved now. We all must find out how each of these people feels about all of the issues; not only for our businesses, but also our lives at home and for our children’s future. Many men and women have fought for our right to vote. The least we can do is study the issues and vote.

As I write this article, I am in Park City, Utah, beginning the fall board meetings. The theme of these meetings is to network together. The issues with the MCAA are not very different from the elections. We need people to join the association and make a difference. If you could not make this Midyear Meeting, then please plan on attending the World of Masonry show in Las Vegas in February. We have a great staff of people who complement some super committee chair people who work very hard to make a difference.

Why not belong and join a committee? You can make a difference just as you can make a difference in the elections. We have a great country, and we are all very proud of it. It just needs to be guided in the right direction, and with your help and mine, we can make a difference.

As they say in Chicago, “Vote early and often.”
