Politicks – Running the office and officer
Politics – Shaking hands and kissing babies
Politicks – Introductions made at private country clubs
Politics – Public display of feelings, concerns, and personal views
Politicks – Closed door meetings on how to keep things the same
Politicks, by no means, is a new game. It has been happening since the world begun spinning on its’ axis. Countless times in history and even in literature we learned about it. The funny thing about politicking is that it goes beyond the public eye and into the homes, churches, and schools of communities. It seems that institutions formed and created to help people the most politiking occurs. I will never forget I had a really good job as a Union Organizer. This is where I changed lives as I saw it. However, officers of the union had to endure so much politicking that I had to sometimes question the integrity of it all. I wondered was our mission to change the lives of the workers or to pacify the elected officials. Even though we just concluded one of the most open presidential campaigns in American history, politiking is far from being over. With that being said, BE Magazine is pleased to present the new department named Politicking. Yes, we will still cover what’s going on in our world but we are also going to take it a step further by going into the aspects of POLITIKING!
Get ready for what is to come…
