As far as the local politics of the State is concerned, you are our representative hence there is nothing we can achieve without you.
You remain the star that shines in your constituents.
You beam the searchlight on your constituents to say this is what they need and legislate on it.
All of us cannot be there, but we send you there to go and bring our share here. We have sent you there to represent and as such, we expect so much.from you.
We are not.here to ask what you.have done, it is too early, but we know there is still time.

To be addicted to your people is addiction to God. Running away from the people is a harbinger of progress. You have been carried up, God will continue to be with you if you are addicted to your people.
