Through their efforts, we signed many more voters than we needed to qualify as a political designation.  We will be submitted the paperwork once we have all of the supporting materials we need from the cities and towns where our voters are registered.

To sign up to help, call or txt Chris Reynolds at 617-320-4946 or email him at catsandcampers at comcast dot net.  Thanks!
