The first section is for items that are APPROVED. The second section is for items that are PROPOSED/in-process. The last section are items that have been REJECTED. I also added a section for DONE.

NICK, please put a “NICK OK” next to items in SECTION 2 PROPOSED that we can post to Facebook. Also, add an intro statement on why this is relavent.



Major General Smedley Butler's (USMC) speech entitled “War is a Racket”, from 1933, about corporations and “the war machine”. [Nick OK, I do not see how it can hurt us. It is not totally relevant] [Terra to get Nick's intro paragraph from email, or Nick if you can write one, great. Go for it, add it here.]

“See in-depth commentary/debate on current issues.” Nick - OK

SECTION 2: PROPOSED: Informing citizens about how money in politics affects their lives. Terra, Erika - comments? THIS IS NEW
HOW ABOUT THIS? Itt's about “revolving door”. not specific to Mass, but shows how much money there is in politics… how getting elected is “the ante” for getting the consluting gig (Common Cause “scorecard” from Terra) Nick - OK [Nick, pls write intro statement…my suggestion is “To see if voters in your district passed a resolution directing legislators to take action at the federal level, click here”.

page with a WHOLE LOT OF IDEAS for Nick to review:
