“Nothing is more essential to the establishment of manners in a State than that all persons employed in places of power and trust be men of unexceptionable characters. The public cannot be too curious concerning the character of public men.” – Samuel Adams
Adams’ thought that the public must scrutinize the character of elected officials is as valid today as it was when he spoke those words more than 200 years ago. Take a moment to consider what you would like to find out about a variety of those elected officials who govern over us. It is your right, as a citizen, to understand the character of those with power over us.
