State senator publishes book

By Charles Ashby

From her press release:

Sen. Morgan Carroll, D-Aurora, has published her first book, "Take Back Your Government: A Citizen's Guide to Grassroots Change" through Fulcrum Publishing and is now available online and in bookstores across the country.

This book is a practical, non-partisan, practical "how-to" guide for citizen's to know how to most effectively participate to make and change laws and public policy at the state level and includes, tips, checklists, resources, samples and stories from actual citizens who have changed laws.

"I wrote this book because despite studying political science and getting a law degree at no point did I feel like I was ever taught the basic real-world tools about how to actually impact the system. I realized that most other people were in the same position. This book is written with inside information I have learned to help de-mystify the legislative process and given citizens their birthright keys to the capitol to make sure government is working for them," Carroll said.

"After seven years in the legislature it is painfully clear to me that the only real check-and-balance to the influence of lobbyists and special interests in the legislature is when people participate and everyone has a right to know how to be effective in shaping their own government and their own state."
