Today's blog is very short but gets right to the heart of the message; go vote!
November 8th, 2016 is election day and with it, a new president and possible changes in congress that can change the flow of our lives as it relates to the home building industry.
As members of our National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), through all of our local home builders associations (HBA), we have a responsibility to our family & co-workers to make sure we vote. We also need to make sure that others in our circle vote as well. The home building industry is very sensitive to any national turmoil or change; it's not knowing the unknown that can make all of us at least a bit apprehensive. I don't personally care whether you are a conservative, moderate or liberal but I do care that you are at least a Houser, someone who cares that the housing industry candidate gets elected. At the end of the day, housing is what puts food on my table, a roof over my head and the ability to have choices. Everything else is just personal satisfaction that someone or something will make approximately 50% of the people happy.
Voting in the United States is an honor and a privilege. Get to the voting booths November 8th and vote as if your career depends on it because it just may.
