Joe did a speaking engagement at a high school in Haverill, which focused on third parties. Tried to differentiate us from the two main political parties. A number of the kids were interested. Good experience overall.

On the quartermaster side, Joe is working on getting financial reporting in order. Please let him know if you have in-kind contributions to report.

Steve reports that Arlington continues to work on a path to compliance with multi-family zoning requirements for MBTA communities.

Jamie reports that past meetings have been uploaded to youtube. Planning on sending some email updates and scheduling blog posts. Found someone interested in the IT director role. Jamie will work with him, ie., onboarding.


No USPP meeting last week, but we expect one this week. Agenda not posted yet. Joe would like to discuss opening pirate council meetings to the general public. This would be a change to discord, to allow others to comment during meetings, propose agenda items, etc.


Party conference scheduled for Jan 21st. Two hours. Need to put out a call for topics.

Joe is interested in doing some in-person events, once COVID dies down a bit more.

Planning for local elections. We have etherpad set up, with various tasks that need to be done (like contacting prospective candidates).

Pirate news is Sunday at 7:30 (meet at 7:00pm to prep)

Micky reports that a group in Philadelphia is setting up public phones (mounted like pay phones) that run GNU/Linux, and make phone calls for free.

Jamie working on a public records requests to locate all of the shotspotters in Boston.

Next meeting on Jan 5th.
