I have been a long time reader and have finally signed up. One of the many issues that I hold dear to my heart is the National Popular Vote movement/bill.
We have a version here in Massachusetts, House Bill 678, that should be brought up for a vote in the House any day now.
I am asking you, and would very much appreciate it, if you would be willing to call your own State Rep. and Rep. Alice Wolf who can be contacted at 617-868-WOLF.
I have been told that Rep. Wolf may be working against the bill and I think it would be very helpful for her to hear from Cambridge residents and Massachusetts residents as a whole on this topic and bill since a vast majority of us support the very democratic notion of “1 person, 1 vote” that is NPV.
And you can find more info on the National Popular Vote movement/bill here…..
And just fyi, there is a lot of support for this bill. Speaker Dimasi and Senate Pres. Murray support the bill along with many others. Lets do everything we can to make sure this is a slam dunk and make Massachusetts the 5th state to pass NPV! (Well, probably the 6th or 7th state once it hopefully gets to the Governor’s desk to sign as NPV bills have already passed both houses of Rhode Island and most recently California.) If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Thanks so much!
