Why we Should Vote
By this time in the election cycle, I
am so tired of the constant talk about who is going to win. Why don’t we just

you want is government stepping in and controlling our business. You have to

we are very concerned for your rights. In fact the California Association of
Realtors is going to start a new program informing us of Legislative fact that

The most important thing is that
whether you are in Orange County California, or somewhere else in the country, don’t
forget to vote. It is important for you to get your opinion herd and it is the
only poll that counts.
