Chris Smith made it to 1000!
Chris Smith, Bike/Walk’s pick for Sam Adams’ seat, is awaiting verification that he has qualified for Voter Owned Elections funding after turning in 1050 $5 contributions. This is very exciting news for grassroots democracy, in my opinion, and the cycling community was key to getting Chris this far.
Chris Smith Over-the-top Party!
This Sunday (January 27th), 6-9pm
NW Lucky Lab (1945 NW Quimby)
This party is a big thank-you for all of you who’ve helped Chris thus far. It’s also a last chance to get those forms and contributions in. Chris’ 1000 contributions haven’t all been approved yet and 50 isn’t much of a safety buffer if some are rejected…so don’t get the impression that your $5 is no longer of use!
