Yes on 1 & 3 Weekly Saturday Doorknocking 10/30
Start: Saturday, October 23, 2021•12:00 PM
Join us to build the Yes on 1 for a Better Budget movement to bring about real budget reform, and Yes on 3 to get an elected school committee in Boston! We will be hosting weekly canvasses to reach as many Boston voters as possible before the general election on November 2, 2021. Yes on 1 would change how the city budget is created by allowing the city council to change budget items by a majority vote, and create an office of participatory budgeting to allow people to vote on certain budget items. If/when Question 3 passes, a home rule petition filed by City Councilor Ricardo Arroyo and supported by Councilor Julia Mejia would create a process to determine the eventual structure of the elected school committee. Together, the ballot question and home rule petition could restore to Bostonians the democratic right to elect their school board; a right that residents in every other school district in the state possess.
