It was very interesting participating in a "concerned citizen" breakfast Friday morning. A question was asked, "How do we get more members?" After thinking about that question for a minute, it reminded me of a Leadership class I took last month. Before any change can happen, a "vision" must be provided. In our case a vision has been provided; fiscal responsibility by the government with representation by the people. With any change, one must present short term wins to gain approval. I propose that we advertise what successes we have had, so that the people will understand that we are not just a group of people talking about issues, but creating solutions. An example would be, "If you are happy that homes are not being built in the Sutter Buttes without voter approval (Measure V), then join the Sutter Buttes Tea Party, we make change happen." We have to make the people understand that change will happen with participation toward a common goal.
