If you are able to travel to Boston to stand in solidarity with other concerned citizens, please do. The more people that make the effort to travel the distance to the State House the more the legislators take notice. There will be key speakers endorsing the home rule petition; what we need are concerned citizens to stand in support of them.
CARPOOLING FROM BIG Y in LEE
For those that would like to car pool to Boston, we will be meeting at the Big Y parking lot in Lee, by the entrance to the turnpike at 10am. We hope that there will be at least 4 people who are willing to drive if we have a good turn out of people going. When you enter the Big Y parking lot, please park facing the road.
STATE HOUSE: ALL MEET UP AT ELEVATORS AT 12:30 PM
If you drive independently we will be meeting everyone to gather before the hearing to receive ID’s that will help the legislators identify us together during the hearing, and get all of us oriented to the process. We will meet at the elevators on the floor that you will be exiting to get to Gardner Auditorium.
