Thanks for Voting, Now Let's Get Back to Work
by Michelle Carr Crowe
Regardless of who or what you voted for, after another day or two, most races and issues will be decided upon, at least where I live in Santa Clara County, Calif., AKA Silicon Valley. Some people, like President Barack Obama, will stay in office. Others will leave and new people will come in.
There's always about a 90-day transition time when, frankly, not much gets done in the government except for arranging officees and thanking supporters.
I propose it's now time for all of us to get back to work. Some issues dear to real estate agents' hearts, including the home mortgage tax deduction, are possibly changing soon. Others, such as the Mortgage Debt Forgiveness Act, needs support to continue beyond 2012.
A big thank you to all who voted. Now let's get back to work!
