Brigid leads our local OFA chapter meeting 5/31/09

A few Saturdays ago, I went to the Boston area OFAMA meeting to discuss how best to support & implement the administration’s healthcare, education, environmental/energy reform policies utilizing the organizing structure put in place by the Obama campaign. Yesterday afternoon, my local chapter met to concentrate on healthcare. There will be a healthcare “Day of Service” on June 27th. More information to come…
Last week I met with Mark Gallagher, staff assistant to Rep. Edward Markey as part of a group sponsored by moveon.org to discuss the coming Waxman-Markey Energy Reform Bill . We were asking Markey to keep the bill as strong as possible and resist attempts to water down the bill. Contact Markey’s office with support & comments: 781-396-2900 (Medford) 508-875-2900 (Framingham) or 202-225-2836 (DC).
