Wanted to give everyone a quick update on our progress!
We now have 402 City of Boston residents that have signed our petition. 370 of those are from Jamaica Plain. We also have a large number of supporters who are anonymous to me, but not the elected officials who see the emails. We feel strongly that looking at the numbers close to 59% of the 162 are from JP.
We currently have 158 fans on Facebook and 87 followers on our Twitter account. Not all are supporters of a JP for All, but all are welcome to continue following our progress.
In case you missed some of the other big news that aligns with our push for transparency, inclusion, and finding a positive way forward Councilor O'Malley wrote a piece on the JP Patch in support of Whole Foods, the JPNC now has their by-laws posted on their website, and City Council President Stephen Murphy remains a supporter.
We are hosting our first signature gather event this Saturday! Drop me a line if you are interested in the details.
