Saturday is Halloween. If your family is like mine, your Saturday night will be spent with children indulging in all the thrills of the holiday.
While Halloween is important to some of our youngest citizens, the following week is more important to us.
Tuesday, November 3 is Election Day.
And you are lucky enough to be born in a country that allows you to vote. You have the golden opportunity to select who will run your state for the next four years.
That is amazing.
This election is a big one for transportation. The candidate we select for Governor will lead our state for the next four years, drafting transportation budgets and setting transportation priorities that will have long term impacts on the entire state of Kentucky.
So if you think you'll be too busy Tuesday to visit the polls I encourage you to adjust your schedule. Find some time to exercise your right to choose the person who will have an impact on your life and your company for the next four years.
Encourage your spouse, staff, peers, neighbors, and anyone else who is registered to take the time out of their busy schedule next Tuesday to go vote.
Abraham Lincoln may have said it best when he said "Elections belong to the people. It's their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters."
Make sure you vote next Tuesday so you don't find yourself sitting on your blisters for the next four years.
