I wanted to make a thread worthy of this forum. One that would provide for good dialogue and input, take all members into consideration and give us a
chance to look beyond the surface level of it all.
OK, this is going to be very, very difficult for some, not so difficult for others. I want us to leave our party affiliation at the door and just join
in as citizens-at-large.
Here’s the question I offer up for discussion.
What is the MOST IMPORTANT issue in this year’s election?
There are plenty of issues out there:
Debt and Deficit
Role of Government
…and many many more.
Which of these issues is the “make it or break it” for you? Which one is most important in making your decision?
Each and every issue is important, either to all of us or to many of us and they all deserve answers from the candidates. I was curious which issue
was most important to the ATS community.
For me, it's education. Mostly because I'm an educator and it's an important part of my life. There are so many things that need to be "fixed",
however, in the recent years, they've tried to fix issues by throwing new regulations and requirements at them which of course required additional
administratos (which was one of the biggest problems to start with) and it's just grown exponentially. Without going into an extreme amount of detail
in the opening post, I'll just say there needs to be serious cuts in some areas and serious support in others. The class sizes need to be smaller,
the administrators need to be fewer, the paperwork needs to be less and the quality time with students needs to increase.
Which issue is most important to you and why is it the most important?
