Want to vote? Ronald Sears wants to help

Are you registered to vote? That’s the question Ronald Sears was asking patrons of the Queen City Family Restaurant on Saturday as he stood outside with his clipboard in hand. Roland, a volunteer from the Hispanic Center, was one of many around the city encouraging residents to register to vote.

Speaking with Ronald in between those walking in for lunch we learned that many brushed off his question and in some cases became very rude. That didn’t stop Ronald, he was determined to stay out as long as he could.

Ronald was simply out to remind the community that voting gives everyone a voice, and is the first step in making that voice heard.

We all get hungry. Was he approaching people at an inconvenient time? Maybe, but his dedication to his community out-weighted the attitude people were giving him. Not one time did he asking for political affiliation or who someone intended to vote for.
