First, a big thank you to everyone who has sent in a written submission to the Municipal Clerk in opposition to the Three Sisters proposals, and to everyone who has volunteered to help.
We need help with 3 things:
1. More speakers at the Public Hearing. It can be as simple (and as powerful) as saying “I oppose”. You don’t need to say anything else if you don’t want to. You don’t have to speak for 10 minutes. You can read a prepared statement. You can read your written submission. The act of signing up to speak is of paramount importance right now. We need to send a message to Town Council and the feedback we’ve received is that the more speakers we have at the Public Hearing, the better. Register to speak here.
If you’re nervous or apprehensive, we are working on a video that explains how the whole process will work and what you can expect. Plus, we are happy to report that we are setting up a Public Hearing support service so you can contact one of our volunteers who can provide tailored guidance to your individual needs. If you feel this service would be of value to you, please respond to this email.
2. Record a video of yourself from your phone stating “I oppose the Three Sisters proposal.” Just imagine if we had hundreds of people send us in this 5 second clip. We could mash it together and make a very powerful statement, which could then be presented to Town Council during the Public Hearing. All you need to do is reply to this email with your video attached. It can be just you or together with your family. Please note that this 5 second video does not in any way replace the importance of speaking at the Public Hearing or providing a written submission.
3. We are looking for volunteers to help us design some infographics for social media. Please reply to this email if you have this expertise and are willing to help.
We end with a heartfelt thank you for engaging. This past year hasn’t been easy for everyone and we value your time, effort, and willingness to stand up for our community, a community that we love, cherish, and want to protect for future generations. We are now reaching a critical juncture in this approval process and we thank you so much for your support.
Have a great day!
