Casino Talk Getting Busy

Thank you to all who attended August 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.   The casino talk is just starting to emerge as a routine news topic as we are two months away from the vote.  They'll be throttled up certainly by early October as the debate gets more heated with a month before the vote.   Our information continues to spread with multiple articles, books, albums, DVDs  which most are being given away.    There is no "pay here" or "donate here".  It doesn't cost anything to be informed and make the right decision.  It is as easy as reading and sharing with others:

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 are poised to do more and multiply our efforts.     

It is fortunate that other organizations with fundraising efforts are doing the good work with strong rally efforts, planted lawn signs, aggressive mailings, and paid advertising.     While that effort continues, our non-fundraising team will continue to 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 continue to build help build that confidence.
An impact has been made already with the volume of people we have reached.   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.    As my book explains, even the former Governor of Connecticut was apposed to casinos back before Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun became a reality.
Our slogan use to be "Share if You Care".   Now it is, "Don't Make Me Say I Told You So".
