The year 2016 is a time for new beginnings. For one, as those living in a representative democracy, this year will allow us the chance to elect a new President and Vice-President on November 8. Though, of course, he or she won’t take office until January 20, 2017. And even though the nominees haven’t been officially chosen for either the Democratic or Repub-
lican Parties, it is time to begin looking at potential candidates, to understand how they have voted on important issues, to understand what their vision is for the United States, and how they plan to carry this vision out. Be informed and take advantage of the fact that in the United States, we do have the opportunity to vote for the leaders of our country. [I can already hear the griping that perhaps a candidate you wanted stepped out of the presidential race already or will do so in the near future.] Nevertheless, we still have a choice on whom to vote for to be the next leaders of the U.S. That is a privilege that we all should take advantage of, so inform yourself and get out and vote.
Additionally, there is also a new beginning not only at the national level in 2016, but also in your business in the pressure washing industry. This month is the Buyer’s Guide for Cleaner Times. As such, this is the place to go for your business to make connections with manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors who can provide you with pressure washers, guns, lances, pumps, nozzles, and other accessories. So I want to encourage you to take advantage of the resources available to you in this issue to grow and
prosper your business. May you have a great 2016!
