February 20th meeting at Ruby’s will start at 11AM.Focus: Reports and discussion of our work in response to Springfield’s attacks on our pension/benefits. Before the meeting, do the following:
1) Contact you State Senator and Rep by phone (888-912-5959) or e-mail (go to www.il.gov/legislative branch). Tell them to support We Are One’s call for a Summit to solve the state’s budget issue. .
2) Come to the Biss/Gabel/Fine Forum at the Wilmette Community Rec Center,3000 Glenview Rd, Wilmette. It starts at 7PM, this Monday evening, 2/4/13. Eight of us attended Stean’s Forum last month. Forum’s are 2 way switchboards. Your attendance speaks to the issue’s importance. Your absence does the opposite. Since none of these three legislators have backed the summit, we need to back and push them.
3) If you cannot attend the Forum, help us with visits and contacts with district office staff and the legislator. We still want constituents of Moylan, Martwick, D’Amico and Lang to come with a spokesperson and help us get commitments for the summit. Call me now!
4) John Metz of our e-communications team wants to send you our web page. He needs your e-mail address. We have won 2 fights. We are learning winning tactics as we go. Learn with us. It’s why we organize. You do what you can; together, we do what you cannot.
