Our signature collection team has been making great use of the beautiful weather we’ve had this summer! As of the June annual meeting, we needed 60 completed petition sheets (2,700 signatures). Over the summer, 6 of us have collected 24 sheets (1,080 signatures) at the library and the farmers’ markets, which brings our remaining tally needs to 36 sheets (1,620 signatures). We hope that this group can fill another 20 of these 36 sheets before the end of October.
That would bring our remaining need to only 16 sheets. Based on our experience, getting a completed sheet takes roughly 2 hours of work.
We are seeking League members who will volunteer to complete 1 or 2 sheets before the end of October. It’s more fun to collect with a friend, so team up with someone… or if you are inexperienced and would prefer to go with a signature gathering buddy, please contact Rhanna Kidwell (617-244-3832) or Bonnie Carter (617-969-0686). You can collect by standing out at the library, by going door-to-door, or by taking a sheet with you to meetings or other gatherings with a concentration of Newton voters. Again, doing it with a friend is much more fun! If you can help out, or have any questions, please contact Rhanna Kidwell at the phone number above or at
