Where to begin?
I’ve worked on fundraising, organizing a trip to the Secretary of Education, correcting our lawnsigns to show a $437 million dollar figure, and putting our Let Duluth Vote’s first flyer.
This morning I changed the signs along 21st Ave. East and have gotten a bunch of people to fix the signs up in their neighborhoods.
Here’s the press release I just sent out:

Let Duluth Vote corrects lawnsigns
Motorists will soon notice a change to the now familiar Let Duluth Vote
lawnsigns since the admission by representatives of Johnson Controls at the last
School Board meeting that the true cost of the red plan will be $437 millioin
not the previously announced $293 million. The new figure adds in the interest
over the 20-year life of the project. Members of Let Duluth Vote have begun
changing the signs over to show the new figure today.
The change will also me made to new lawnsigns which the group has ordered due to
the heavy demand. They will be available for distributioin next week. The change
will also be reflected in a flyer which the group has begun leafleting the
school district with.
Up until now Let Duluth Vote has mostly made its case in news reports and in
letters to the editor. The flyer will give the organization the chance to
explain the lawnsigns message. A number of people have commented that they are
uncertain what the $million dollar figure on the Let Duluth Vote signs means.
