"All politics is local" is an oft-repeated quote attributed to former U.S. Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill. REALTORS® know how important location is, the effect it has on the value of a property, the perception of the community, and the attractiveness of a school district. The decisions made by elected officials who serve at municipal level, as well as on school boards, have an enormous impact on a neighborhood. This fall, your general election ballot will be full of local races for positions representing municipalities and school boards.
