A community is defined by more than its geography. A community is people living together, taking care of each other, having time for each other. I believe that we're stronger together than we are on our own, that this community succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, when everyone does their fair share, when everyone plays by the same rules. We need to be focused on building a community that lasts— a community that lifts up all our members.
Communities that work, take work. All the things that make us love where we live. Things we have and hold in common: our culture, employment, adequate housing, education, family, economic development, and most of all our Elders and youth. A system that addresses all aspects of our well-being. A leader’s job is to look into the future and see the community, not as it is, but as it should be.
