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.

NO MORE WELFARE FOR MR. BIG


TIF Petition at Bath Polling Place on August 27


A group of local concerned citizens will have a petition opposing another round of corporate tax breaks (Tax Increment Financing) for BIW at the August 27 polling station in Bath.

We encourage you to be sure to stop and sign it when you vote.  If you've already voted please stop by and sign the petition.  We'll have extra copies on hand that people can take home and get their neighbors to sign and get back to us before September 4.  That is the date of the next City Council workshop on the TIF.

Here is the petition language:

Petition to the City of Bath, Maine

We, the undersigned Bath residents, call upon the City Council to reject another tax break for BIW.  Past Tax Increment Financing (TIFs) have not resulted in more jobs being created at BIW.  We prefer our local resources be used for public education, road repair, and other local needs.


Bruce, Karen, Mary Beth, Kristin
