I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

MORE ON THE COMING CLAMPDOWN



In states across the country, elected officials and right-wing pundits are calling not just for cuts to wages and benefits in the name of austerity, but even proposing laws to undermine labor unions’ influence, and in fact, their very existence.

Hello Bruce,
We hope you & yours are well ! The pot-luck idea's a good one. John X, Bob & the crew down on the farm had a celebration recently (which we missed) But John Frank's having his usual early year get-together where I'm sure some stimulating conversation will take place. We'll keep on keeping on as I'm sure you & Mary Beth will keep doing ! Shalem .
