One thing for sure that is needed now is for the public to more aggressively get involved in a discussion of the issues, the impacts, and most importantly, how they would like to see things done in the future. It is the obvious time to weigh in, both from the point of view of the time available now before next January and the next session and also before the 2016 elections. That election could be a really important one for setting the direction on public policy for years to come. You have the results of recent major changes versus an earlier time of significant contrast for the state to choose which direction to go.
What would be a really nice change is if our citizens, in learning, thinking, and talking about the issues, had impact on candidates and election results instead of millions of dollars, twisted messages, and downright lies in the closing two weeks of a campaign deciding our future. The answer will be in how we the people respond.
