Saving the Motel Voucher Program would be a significant win, but we must remember this program is a stop-ga ..read more

Friends – Town meeting day elections are right around the corner, and we need people from every walk of life to run for local office in every town if we want to make any progress in our state over the next few years. Unfortunately, it is far too rare for the people who are most directly impacted by rising inflation, high transportation costs, and lack of affordable housing to serve in any elected capacity.
