The 1770s, 1860s and 1960 are now ancient history, and this is probably not the resurrection or the second coming of George Washington, honest Abe Lincoln or Bobby Kennedy. But two of our local politicians are making all the right moves for our community and our children. These two Yankee Doodle good guys, who are serving our neighborhoods so well, do not wear white cowboy hats or ride painted ponies. And because they don't, and because it is very often difficult for voters to recognize hard-working elected officials, I feel these politicians should receive a little praise from us parents.
