Volunteers Needed to Defeat Question 1
hey all – by now, we assume all of you know about ballot question #1 related to traffic lanes on Mass Ave. Though non-binding, the referendum is a very real threat to the Mass Ave Corridor plan. Arlington could easily lose our $6.8m in federal and state funding if a majority ”yes” vote to question 1 is the result of April 6th election. WE MUST DEFEAT THIS QUESTION.
As such, EALS is working with the committee for A Better Mass Ave (ABMA), formed specifically to defeat Question 1. ABMA has raised enough money to design and purchase signs to be held at polling stations on election day and at high-traffic locations throughout the week. We also have flyers to hand out and will do a limited mailer.
In short, for us to be successful, WE NEED VOLUNTEERS!! Please let us know if you are interested and when you are available (plus your phone number). The greatest need is for folks to volunteer to hold sign for one or two hours between 8am-8pm next Saturday April 6at the 10 polling sites throughout town.
We also need volunteers for Friday evening before election day and people to hold signs during AM or PM rush hour in the Center or at Capitol Square next Tues, Wed or Thurs.
