Every Saturday, Indivisible Nashoba hosts a fun, informal, and effective postcard party where we send creative handwritten postcards to voters, legislators, and anyone else we feel needs motivation … to vote, to speak out, to participate. For example, we’ve sent out thousands of personalized postcards to encourage folks to get out and vote.)
Bring your fancy colored pens to Mike
and Mary’s on Saturday.

From IN Newsletter of November 4th: Mike says, “We’ll be writing cards to support Democrat John Bel Edwards in a run-off election for governor of Louisiana. Apparently, neither candidate got 50% of the vote, so LA law calls for a re-do. That election will be held on Nov. 16th.”
Join us at Mike and Mary’s this Saturday. Bring a friend. 9-11
a.m. For details contact Mike at email@example.com.
Indivisible Nashoba will host its
2020 Kickoff General Meeting on Saturday, November 9th at the Groton
Public Library beginning at 10:15. EVERYONE should make an effort to attend –
please. It’s important that we snag some
positive face time – and stay abreast of evolving political developments (impeachment,
upcoming state-wide elections, democratic primary events, etc.).
Margaret “Plenty of Progressives in Pepperell” Scarsdale has confirmed
that candidate Deb Busser will be on hand to outline her campaign for
State Representative against Republican Sheila Harrington. Deb will take
questions and discuss how we might support her campaign.
The ban on single-use plastic bags was
approved by a majority of voters at the Groton Fall Town Meeting on
October 21st. Congrats to IN for helping
raise awareness – and thanks to everyone who voted (always important). The vote was closer than might have been
expected – so every vote counted.
Margaret asked that we acknowledge that the nice
folks of Pepperell (led by high-schooler Duncan Premus) also passed a
ban on single-use plastic bags last Monday evening. Well done.
Both bans will go into effect in 2020.

President Zelensky,” Newhouse said in late

In fact if you think a closed-door investigation was a media spectacle, just
