Good News Edition – August 18, 2018


We’ve got another changeable weather day here in Massachusetts, but I suppose that’s part for the course as the summer starts winding down. The kids are nearly back to school and a few leaves are starting to fall from the trees, spiraling down to the ground in a flurry of whispers that tell of autumn’s approach. Soon, we’ll be all about pumpkins and mums and apples. Change is coming.

And, hopefully – with your help – those winds of change will blow in our favor come the November midterm elections. Even as the summer sun begins to set a little earlier each day, things are heating up on the various campaign trails of all the excellent, progressive candidates who are knocking on doors in neighborhoods all across the commonwealth. People are getting involved and getting excited. Check in to your regional pages and the state page on Facebook to find out more about how you can get involved on the ground. And – most importantly -make sure you get out there and vote. You can make even more of a difference if you can encourage others to get out and vote and/or help get voters to the polls. It’s only a few short months away now!

Until then, here is this week’s collection of happy headlines.

Enjoy!
