Wow. In the two days since we alerted you to Gov. Deval Patrick's unconscionable veto of the Salary Reserve for human service workers, your response has been incredible.
Members of The Caring Force have already sent more than 1,100 emails to their representatives asking them to co-sign Rep. Linsky's letter to Speaker DeLeo urging him to override the governor's veto. And the best part: your advocacy is yet again making a huge difference: so far 100 representatives have added their name to the letter!
But, there is still more work to be done for us to have the best chance of getting a veto override.
If your representative isn't listed below, it is critical that they hear from you today! If you're not sure who your representative is, you can use our easy form to find out and message them if their name is missing.
If your representative is listed below, take a second to thank them. You can look up their contact information at www.wheredoivotema.com and send an email or call their office to give them the thanks they deserve for this important support.
On behalf of the entire Caring Force, thank to you to Rep. David Linsky and all of our current champions signed below who are supporting an override of the Governor's veto of the Salary Reserve!
