RALLY FOR DAN WOLF Thursday – CANCELLED – for now.

August 28, 2013

DAN-WOLF-630x419The Ethics Commission has extended the deadline given to Dan Wolf to resign to September 19th. Between now and then there are hopes for negotiations that will make changes that may affect Wolf others like him.

Therefore organizers have cancelled the rally for tomorrow.

“We do not have a victory for those of us who think the Commission’s ruling is wrong,” said rally organizer Sue Truitt in an email to participants, “but we do have the beginning of what could be a sensible solution. Now is not the time for more heat; let us pray that cool heads prevail.”

In an email supporters, here“Dan Wolf, explains what will happen between now and September 19.

Truitt gives credit to the many people who spoke out, “I honestly believe that the many letters to the Commission, the newspaper stories and editorials, and the sharp criticism of just plain folks like us have been a strong factor in turning a dispute into a negotiation.”

We don’t know what the outcome will be.

“But keep my email and my phone number handy. I’m keeping yours. Who knows what challenges are ahead!” added Truitt. “I’ve heard from so many people who care about our voting rights and about good government. (Yes, we filled the buses!) But freedom doesn’t come free. We have to continue to work for it.”

Stay tuned.


RALLY at the STATEHOUSE for State Senator DAN WOLF – JOIN US!!

August 26, 2013

DAN-WOLF-630x419We need you to help us send important messages to the Ethics Commission and those who appoint them. Join us as we rally at the statehouse and sending letters and emails insisting that this decision be revisited.

We are on the verge of losing our duly elected State Senator, elected by the people to serve the people. Despite the fact that the Ethics commission had all of the same information when he was first elected and then before the subsequent re-election, they have now told him he must resign because of his interest in Cape Air.  see Dan’s statement here

We need YOU to write letters and send emails, for information on who to contact see this document.

PLEASE CONSIDER taking some time to join us this Thursday as we come together to rally to keep our Senator:

Dear Friends,

Did you ever think that right here in Massachusetts we’d have to wage a voting rights battle?

Cape and Islands voters have put Dan Wolf in the State Senate not once, but twice. After almost 3 years of his unblemished service, the Massachusetts Ethics Commission has suddenly found Dan out of compliance. And the Commission “solution” is not only nonsensical, it is draconian. It is highly likely that next Thursday, August 29th Dan will be forced to resign from the Senate. That means the Commission will have successfully taken OUR ballots and thrown them out.

Come rally to support reform of this flawed system and to seek justice for Dan.

BUSLOADS OF FOLKS WILL BE HEADING FROM THE CAPE TO BEACON HILL ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 29TH at 9:30AM. WE’LL RALLY ON THE STATE HOUSE STEPS AT NOON.danwolf4ss

1. You can join the bus group by reservation. First come, first served. Donations for bus fare will be appreciated but are certainly not required.
2. If you want to drive, please try to carpool.
3. Bring your own signs—this IS really just us plain folks working it out!
4. Bring some water and a snack.

Make no bones about it….. we need numbers.
WE NEED YOU!

Let us know you’re coming. If you need a ride, let us know in time to help you get one.

At this writing the best way to reserve a bus slot or ask a question is to email
sutruitt@msn.com or phone 774-327-7277.

We’ll have more contact folks in the next few days and pass them along.
This is not how I planned to spend the last days of summer — but if we do it together we can make a difference.

Volunteer, Rally Organizer


Steve Grossman to speak at our next meeting

May 1, 2013

The Barnstable Democratic Town Committee welcomes State Treasurer Steve Grossman May 15, 2013 at 7pm at the Centerville Rec. Building on 524 Main St. in Centerville. Link to map
Steve-Grossman

Steve was elected treasurer in 2010, since then Steve has delivered on his promise to put all Treasury contracts out to competitive bid, Grossman saving taxpayers over $11 million in reduced service fees and administrative costs. He has established the Small Business Banking Partnership, which has deposited over $250 million of Treasury cash reserve funds in community banks to help grow Massachusetts small businesses and promote job creation. And by reforming management practices and utilizing innovative marketing approaches, Grossman oversaw a record-breaking fiscal year in 2012, with the Massachusetts State Lottery earning an unprecedented $981 million in net profit for taxpayers and the Unclaimed Property Division returning over $93 million worth of cash, stock and mutual funds to their rightful owners.

This meeting will be open to the public, please join us for updates on his initiatives followed by questions and answers.

The BDTC regular meeting will be held prior to Steve’s visit – at 6pm – our regular meeting is open to all Barnstable Democrats.
