GENEVIEVE'S GEMS

People are so docile right now. It is almost as if good government means when the politicians lie to us for our own good, for the public good, and bad government is when politicians lie for their own selfish interests.

COMMENTARY-LOCAL ELECTIONS

The presidential election gets much national attention. It happens every four years and it can mean a shift in the political landscape or a continuance of the current policies. However, it is the local politics that affect people more.

It may be being involved with a school board, community board, neighborhood watch, running for the city or town council, state senate ,etc. Here in New York City more people were involved in local elections than in previous years. Just like national politics, if the constituency believes he/she isn't doing the job, they can and will be replaced. 

Affordable housing and gentrification is a huge issue here. Though not always victorious, grass roots groups made their presence felt. Many incumbent politicians were put on notice that unless they do the job they were elected to do they will be removed by the people. More young people were running for office and I believe that bodes well for the future. Congratulations to all the winners. Remember, do what you promised.

GENEVIEVE'S GEMS

There are heroes/heroines that you'll never find in the history pages, but are no less important to those people they affected.

GENEVIEVE'S GEMS

Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It's about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers.
