Secondary Campaigns & Policies That Are Just As Important For Local Politicians To Advocate & Wholeheartedly

As an environmentally conscious member of society and a rightly proud American citizen, you will presumably be already fully aware of the absolute necessity of smaller local and community concerns and issues being resolved just as much as the more prominent and larger problems.

With that in mind, continue reading to learn more about the secondary campaigns and policies that are just as important for local politicians to advocate and wholeheartedly support.

Animal Welfare

The vast majority of animal shelters across the United States are entirely run by volunteers and funded by charitable donations and occasional government grants, and it is commendable that animal welfare is usually one of the priorities for local counselors.

However, one subject that seriously needs addressing within this country is the laws regarding the declawing of cats; there aren’t any. Under the European Convention for the Protection of Pet Animals, most countries within Europe have banned the declawing of cats, notably England and the rest of the United Kingdom.

Established and renowned veterinary practices, such as Pet Nest Animal Hospital, can advise on how best to handle cats who tend to lash out with their claws in ways that don’t involve mutilating their paws.

Youth Support

Another prominent issue regarding local communities across the length and breadth of the United States is that of how best to encourage and motivate the younger people.

By far, the most effective way of ensuring the youth of the community is set on the ‘right track’ for a prosperous and productive future is first to identify their needs and desires specifically pertaining to their age group, instead of assuming their interests mirror those of older adults.

Engaging with what matters to the young people in a town and putting plans into action to deliver these in the best way possible contributes to a safer, more productive, and ultimately happier community on the whole.

Help For The Elderly

Just as it is important to encourage, support, and provide for the younger generation in particular, it is crucial to help the older generations and elderly members of the community.

Dignity, respect, and an excellent quality of life should be the absolute minimum an older member of the community should be afforded. Your local counselor should make this of optimum priority within their policies and general campaign.

Ways to improve the quality of life in the local community for the older generation include, but are in no way limited to:

  • Connecting willing older people with each other to build connections and even friendships.
  • Ensuring that no member of the community is alone over the Christmas period, namely with the organization of community Christmas day meals and entertainment.
  • Government schemes to employ young people to help older people with household chores such as cleaning and backyard jobs such as mowing the lawn and weeding the garden.
  • The implementation of a grocery shopping service for older people so that they always have the essentials.
