Vote Yes for November Fundraiser at Arthur's in Hoboken September 20th 6-8pm

 These notes were sent out earlier today and last week from the Vote Yes in November Committee.

 Vote Yes For November's Fundraiser Reminder: 

Just a friendly reminder that this Thursday from 6 to 8 pm at Arthur's Tavern is Vote Yes For November's important fundraiser for the Vote Yes for November initiatives to consolidate Hoboken municipal elections!  We are hoping that all of you will come out for this important cause - this critical step of fundraising will most likely determine whether or not we will be successful at the ballot voting for these initiatives in November. 

If you haven't already done so, please A) RSVP at http://www.voteyesfornovember.org (preferable),, B) DONATE at http://www.voteyesfornovember.org, and C) invite your friends to the event.  Even if you are unable to attend, a donation is much appreciated.

Vote Yes For November's Initial Note Last Week:

Thank you all for your efforts in the initial petition process to consolidate the local Hoboken municipal elections.  In case you missed, it, we were successful at putting the two initiative questions on the ballot this upcoming Election Day in November with over 1,800 signatures from Hoboken residents!  All your hard work in obtaining petition signatures paid off.

As many of you know, we have an important fundraiser on behalf of our efforts coming up [this] Thursday, September 20 at 6 pm at Arthur's Tavern (237 Washington Street).  The cost is $100 per person.  This is an important fundraising event - in order for Hoboken voters to be educated about our initiative questions, we need to raise funds to pay for our communication efforts.  The more we can pay for our communication efforts (ie mailers, website, email), the more likely Hoboken voters will vote in favor of our initiatives.  Without the necessary funds, the less likely our initiatives to consolidate Hoboken municipal elections will pass at the ballot this November.  We know opponents of our efforts will already be coming out to vote against our initiatives in mass - we need to spend ever dollar we can to educate voters about the benefits of consolidating elections.

Here's how you can help - in addition to contributing at our fundraiser (you can also give online at http://www.voteyesfornovember.org and click donate at the top), please pass along the invitation to your friends and follow up with phone calls to confirm their attendance.  The invite is attached.  You can RSVP on the website, or by calling Alessio at (201) 457-9028.
