We’re blessed to live and work in such a wonderful place of rich history wrapped in natural beauty. We’re cursed by great uncertainties when it comes to our elected leaders at all levels and the uncertain future of our local and national economy.
Interesting times indeed.

In life, there’s
always that omnipresent voice of change. When things are going smoothly
on the surface and people are not impacted directly by the actions of others,
it is simply human nature to only focus on the things you can control.
If I'm not affected, everything else should be running fine. But when basic democratic principles of
asking questions of your government are looked upon with distain by a handful
of the Old Guardians in Rochester, well we had a problem with that.
Our goal is to raise funds to be spent on awareness campaigns spotlighting the real issues effecting our community, free from the radical extreme elements with loud but empty voices. We want to make sound, responsible decisions based on fact and not innuendo. We also want to support candidates who are like-minded. Committed to measured and responsible change.
If you are like us and acknowledge that change is inevitable but only effective when approached soundly and free from hype, please join us. We need your support to further the efforts of measured change. Absent a group like ‘R-Gang, you get the opposite of measured. You get the radical extremes of complete avoidance or the nuclear option. In our opinion neither of these radical extremes are good for our community.
Please help support our efforts.
