“When we talk about what really affects us, there are road issues, there are city council issues, there are school board issues… all of those things really take a key role in the quality of life in our community. And we’ve had races decided in Colorado, for school board for example, by a single vote,” said Williams. “Your vote may really be the one that makes the difference.”
