    If you or someone you know lives in any of the districts of these banking committee members, NOW is the time to make a call to them, write a letter or at least send an email, encouraging them to support the Sandy Galef Bill. And it wouldn’t hurt to send a Thank You to those already supporting it (or its discussion), including Annette Robinson. More here:

    And don’t forget to get them to sign the resolution worked on by me and Councilman Dan Welsh last year.

    We are making progress!
