MPP onboarding meeting TODAY + 100-signature pledge

by | Apr 7, 2022

Friends,

We’ve got a big week coming up with Maine Public Power!

Our Power, Maine Public Power’s coalition lead, has just released a 100-signature pledge! We’re asking you to join us in collecting 100 signatures in support of Pine Tree Power before August 1st. If you need motivation to join a canvass or set up in front of a post office, this is it. Committing as a collective to get Pine Tree Power on the ballot is the best way to achieve our goals of a monopoly-busting, climate-centered, consumer-owned utility.

MPP member Cyr just signed and showed his support for public power. “I signed the pledge because I believe a consumer owned utility is what Mainers need. I want to continue my commitment to getting this on the ballot for next year and encourage folks to sign too,” Cyr said.

Join Cyr and sign the pledge today, and tell your friends, coworkers, and family members — we need everyone! 

If you are ready to make the pledge but have never canvassed before, don’t worry. We’re hosting a virtual onboarding event TODAY, Thursday, April 7th! Learn more about Maine Public Power, our goals, and how to get involved. Follow this link to RSVP.

Kickstart your 100-signature goal with these upcoming canvasses!

Lisbon Falls: Sunday, April 10 @ 12:00pm

Portland: Tuesday, April 12 @ 5:30pm

Also, we have non-canvassing volunteer work that needs to be done.

  • Data entry. Contact Wil Thieme at info@mainepublicpower.org. Data entry is wildly important, is done from home, and great if you aren’t comfortable canvassing. 
  • Scanning documents at the Our Power office. Contact Aaron Berger at bioleera@gmail.com.

Thank you all,

Emily R

P.S. Thank you to all our canvassers for their amazing work! Check out these photos from Springvale and Portland this past week.
