Meeting report

[flowers and leaves]

We played:

Schedule

We meet on Tuesdays at 7:45pm at 233 Broadway, Cambridge, as
long as enough people have told me by Monday night that they want
to come.

This coming Tuesday, August 16, a large fraction of the
regulars have told me that they are not coming, so if you want
there to be a meeting, you are definitely going to have to let me
know.

The following Tuesday, August 23, I will not be in town, so if
you want to meet, you’ll have to do the organizing yourself.

But as far as I know, the Tuesday after that, August 30, is
back to normal.

Debate Video – Mike Connolly for State Representative

[Toomey and Connollly]

State Representative Debate Video, Posted by Chris Addis on July 28, 2016. Here’s the video of last week’s debate between the Democratic candidates for State Representative in the 26th Middlesex District, challenger Mike Connolly and incumbent Tim Toomey.

Of course if you live in this district (East Cambridge and East Somerville), you should  watch, but you might be interested in the clash between the old-style constituent services polititian and the new-style progressive policy wonk.  (I’m supporting the policy wonk.)
