Why We Vote
A series of articles on the importance of engagement in the democratic process in the United States, authored by ICCFA Executive Director, General Counsel and lobbyist Robert M. Fells, Esq.
Although the subjects are political in nature, the approach is bipartisan in outlook, at least so far as that is humanly possible. The goal of each essay is not to persuade the reader to adopt a particular political viewpoint or party, but to illustrate why a knowledge of the system is important to protect our businesses, our homes, and our families.
