COMMUNITY LEGISLATING

The policies of this campaign will be composed of contributions from all constituents who desire to be involved in the legislative process. With rigorous deliberation, a group of people can produce ideas far superior than any one person could on their own. Thus, I need your input to draft the legislation that will work for the entirety of our communities. The above list is merely a foundation for us to build on and can only develop according to how great the contribution from community is.

If interested, please contribute on our COMMUNITY LEGISLATING page with a story, piece of art, or idea. We will also be holding forums on our Twitter page (linked in header) where you can participate in community legislating as well. Thank you all.
