I’m obviously more of an activist than a journalist, so I figured I’d share a couple items that my fellow activists might be interested in.
First, an invitation to a townhall meeting sponsored by WidenI77.org.
Join a multi-partisan coalition against HOT lanes at a Town Hall meeting sponsored by their primary opposition group WidenI77.org.
The meeting will take place on Thursday, July 24 at the Cornelius Townhall at 7pm.
Come learn about the current status of the lanes and what we can still do to stop them. We will have printed material, letters to Gov. McCrory to sign, static cling window stickers, and other movement related activity in store to help YOU defeat this horrible idea!
The event is free and open to the public. Please invite your friends! This isn’t just an issue for North Mecklenburg and South Iredell, these lanes are scheduled to appear all over NC…diminishing available road capacity for the benefit of a private, foreign, company.
The time is NOW to get involved!!
You can view the event by clicking HERE.
The open competition of ideas should not be frowned upon!
That said, former State Representative John Rhodes is seeking to be a write in candidate for the US Senate seat up for election in November. It only take 500 signatures to qualify as a write-in candidate in North Carolina and I would encourage everyone to sign this form, get your friends and family to sign this form, and turn it into the County Board of Elections. (All signatures must be for the same county.)
The form is available on the WriteinRhodes.org website.
