Vote Your Best Judgment, Advice to Neighbors in York 89, Villa Park, Illinois, Monday, November 5, 2012

Updated on November 5, 2012

Memo from Max Havlick

Dear Neighbor,

We have all been bombarded with enough political advertising. But I write you here not to tell you how to vote, but to encourage you to make the best decision you can on Tuesday with your unique background, knowledge, and experience.

As the elected Democratic Committeeman in this precinct (York Township 89), I will naturally vote mostly Democratic on Tuesday, but that is because of my particular background and life experience, and everything that makes me a unique person.

But I do not urge you, or anyone else, to vote the same way I do. Why is that?

Because you are different from me! We have different parents, perhaps from different states, nations, or cultures. We come from different home-towns, we went to different high schools and colleges, we had different jobs, we suffered through different life experiences, we worshipped in different religious traditions. Half of you are of a different sex!

We are, in fact, all different from each other in many ways. For instance, some of us voted in Early Voting, others waited to vote on Election Day, and others will choose not to vote at all, or even choose not to register.

So why this letter? Because I consider it my job to encourage you to vote, or not vote, in accordance with your best judgment as a unique human being, based on your own background and experience.

York 89 is my precinct, yes, but it is your precinct also, and nothing would make me happier on Election Day, or prouder of my precinct, than to know that everyone of you voted according to your own best judgment based on your own background, your own experience, your own conscience, your own values.

How can I say that?! Because I believe it takes the combined wisdom and experience of all our people to keep America great -- regardless of whether that happens to conform to my own personal point of view or not. Each of us is part of something bigger than ourselves.

Regardless of your politics or point of view, I would like to hear from you, your concerns, or certainly if there is any problem you would like to discuss with me, political or otherwise. You can meet with me personally at the Subway Restaurant dining room on St. Charles and Ardmore in Villa Park, Illinois, any Wednesday evening after 5:30 p.m., and most Sunday mornings between 10 a.m. and noon.

Best regards,


P.S. For further explanation of my views, you may Google search "Max Havlick, Each Person's Life as a Work of Art." Or go to "Max Havlick on Hubpages" for my profile and list of other current writing.
