Gov Patrick to Meet with JP Progressives

We’ve got some great news – Governor Deval Patrick will be joining us at our next meeting! Please join us this Wednesday, January 27th, in Jamaica Plain, at 5:45pm to meet the Governor and talk about the upcoming election. (Please note this is earlier than usual; the Governor will be with us until 6:45pm).

The Governor is joining us to discuss the upcoming election cycle, the accomplishments of the past 3 years, his plans for 2010, and how we as organizers and progressives in JP can play a role in the campaign. Most importantly, he wants to hear from you about what are you hearing and seeing, and what’s on the minds of JP voters.

We know that the best campaign meet voters and organizers where they live. The best campaigns organize early to build the kind of strong foundation that is needed in this difficult political climate. We are excited that the Governor is doing just that, in our neighborhood, with our help and advice — and we hope you can join us in getting organized for the upcoming year.

The meeting will be at a new location this Wednesday, January 27, at 5:45pm. Because of limited space, this is an RSVP-only event.
Please submit your RSVP quickly, because we can only accept 50 RSVPs. Visit and fill out the RSVP form. We’ll send you an email with the location information.

We will be holding our regularly scheduled business meeting at 7pm following our meeting with the Governor. All are welcome to attend, but not required to do so. (Also, if you can’t make the meeting with the Governor but would like to come to the business meeting, email us at so we can get you the location information.)

Thanks, and we hope you’ll be able to join us.
