NEXT STEP: The Casino War

Thank you to all who attended Thursday night's celebration dinner at Red Roze Pizza (Aug 7 @ 7PM).  We had a great time and a good gathering of proactive supporters.  It was really good to see.

We now move forward with our team of all volunteers for this awareness campaign.  (Not be confused with a fundraiser).    Our goal is to open the door of information to registered Massachusetts voters to the information that show the damaging effects of casino gaming in the state.   We have the opportunity to vote casinos away from Massachusetts in November.
By early October, this will finally be a true hot topic in the public's eye as summer vacations will be over, kids are back in school, and the vote is about a month away.  You'll start to see more frequent news activity as MGM and Repeal the Casino Deal put more dollars into battle.  Our efforts will focus on communication by way of podcasts, videos, social media, texting, emailing, and face-2-face.  We've just met a few thousand already and we are poised to multiply our efforts.     

It is fortunate that other fundraising efforts are doing the good work with rally efforts, planted lawn signs, aggressive mailings, and paid advertising.     While that effort continues, our non-fundraising team will focus on connecting with people that on one knows exist.    Those are the silent registered voters who aren't sure if they want to vote.   Our educational efforts will help build that confidence.
An impact has been made already with just over a couple thousand.   Our job is to open the door to the truth so that an accurate educated decision can be made by the voter before going to the pole.
