A healthy democracy requires a concerted effort and positive collaboration between local politicians and the residents they represent, and to have an open-door policy of listening more and talking less or even better still, go the extra mile to accomplish and tackle issues of concern and implement the necessary changes that are necessary.  As I see it, the responsibility of the regional chair is to help bridge the existing GAP that has been widening over the years.

Closing the GAP in whatever the grievance of the community happens to be, based on what arises and what had in the past been neglected.

Leadership is about bringing all levels to the table, staff, elected representatives, and the people we serve and guide the process to solve issues.
