So on the One Melrose Facebook states vote early or you will be getting a call from us ? How will they know who has voted ? Where will they get this info? This is concerning. Voting is PRIVATE. Could someone chime in please
Ahhh thank you ! Makes sense now
Yeah, because that's what people want; to be hounded while leaving the polling place...
Just remember, if anyone sees anything that isn't right (legal) just take out your handy mobile device and snap a picture or video. Also, you are obligated to tell ANYONE how you are or have voted.
Now....make sure you get to the polls before they close at 8pm!
Think it's the text thing. As said above. If you don't text, you get an encouraging call. Not election fraud or illegal but highly invasive.
When one Melrose knocked on my door I listened politely. Then they asked if I supported their position. When I told them it was between myself, a piece of paper and a pen, the look I got was priceless.😁🤣
Ahhhhh, so that’s who those two women with clipboards sitting behind the “checkout table”, listening to my name and address were. I was wondering. Thanks!
All said and done. Congrats to One Melrose.
In retrospect looking at the One Melrose campaign, and city officials it is clear that the main talking point throughout the campaign was that Melrose does not spend as much as our neighboring towns and cities. Forget outcomes. Forget that Melrose teachers are paid on a step basis and a fair number of them are relatively new. Forget that surrounding communities have greater median incomes and home values. Forget that elderly home owners will be negatively impact. After all...we are all One Melrose (sarcasm)
Most One Melrose supporters will tell you that they want Melrose to be inclusive to all....if and only if everybody buys into their program. Their campaign showed otherwise. In reality they couldn't afford to live in Reading, Winchester, ect. so they are trying to make Melrose exclusive.
In the end we all have something in common....we will all be writing larger checks to the city of Melrose. Good job!
