To The Editor:
With the recent articles that professed the "buy in Lehigh first" when you shop, I agree with them, but we need to go further and support our community.
We have great schools that put on great and exciting shows, recitals, and sporting events.
We have Arts on the Inland to bring arts of all forms to Lehigh Acres. We have many fraternal organizations that do wonderful things for us.
But I ask your readers to go one more step and send a message to the entire county and state politicians that we want to be counted when it comes to doling out our tax dollars.
Lehigh Acres has the size and population to make changes in what happens in our part of Lee county.
We need to register to vote, educate ourselves on those running for office and vote for the ones that will help us.
If you are Republican, Democrat or any of the other parties, I urge you to step up and let them know we are Lehigh Acres. There will be many voters registration drives that will take place throughout Lehigh.
Look for the group from FEVRR to help educate our citizens on what is happening in our part of the county and give us a non-partisan view so that we can control our needs, not someone from outside of Lee county or even Cape Coral.
