www.abettermassave.org has launched!
EALS is proud to announce that “A Better Mass Ave Committee” has launched www.abettermassave.org to showcase the breadth of support the project has amongst our community. As those of you who were in attendance at the DOT hearing at Town Hall last month can attest, Arlington is more unified than ever in wanting to see the corridor project move forward.
Unfortunately, Eric Berger, Maria Romano and other project opponents are trying to make sure this project never happens by placing a non-binding referendum on the April 6 ballot (Saturday, 8am-8pm) that asks Arlingtonians whether they prefer to maintain four lanes on Mass Ave “as currently practiced”. Though non-binding, a strong majority “yes” vote could encourage MassDOT or FHWA to delay the project indefinitely and give the Federal and state funds to other local communities. This would leave Arlington to pay for any improvements ourselves or start fighting for future funding again. We can’t let this happen and residents across Arlington are working hard to encourage a NO vote on Question 1, including Kevin Greeley’s re-election campaign for Selectman. Join us!
How you can help this week:
- Visit the website and forward to your contacts
- Contribute YOUR statement of support to www.abettermassave.org Be proud, not shy! Send via email with a few sentences, street name, and a photo which we will crop appropriately
- Please donate…the campaign is in high gear but requires resources. Even a small amount would be helpful, but $100 or $250 even more so.
If you are able to donate, please do so soon as we need to plan purchases (mailings, stamps, etc) in the coming days.
Snail mail is the only way, checks only to:
