An uninformed public is a dangerous thing. A knowledgeable public wields power in the decision-making process, there to ask the questions that need to be asked and to charge those in authority with responding and delivering. Not knowing and turning a blind eye is a clear dismissal of that power, opening the door to whatever consequences and decisions that are made.
The community must not wield its power and lesson its impact. Having a say and utilizing the community’s voice is vital to the betterment of Baldwin County — and it still matters.
