- Oct 31, 2004I know Sciortino will be supportive ( he's trying to live car-free ).
I'm pretty well tied up until Tuesday helping his campaign.
I'll work on letters & contacts over the next couple weeks once we get
through this election. Barrios has been a good friend of Bike to the
Sea, I imagine Pat Jehlen will be for it, as well as Jim Marzilli, and
Anne Paulsen, though they're a bit further afield.
Would it help to get city councillors / aldermen on board? I'm
familiar with Medford and only vaguely familiar with Somerville. For
Malden and Everett I have no clue, but I figure Steve Winslow & Patrick
Johnson have those covered... Although half the Medford City Council
hates me, the other half might be willing to sign a letter.
As for meetings -- dinner / childrens' bedtime is a non-starter for me.
The time I have to contribute is generally between 10 PM and 11 PM on
nights when I don't get paged from work and/or can get away with leaving
the house a mess...
