I'm more accustomed to writing talking points than speaking them. But when it's your kid, it's easy to talk from the heart.
There's a referendum on the ballot in our town on April 4 to support the construction of a new library. For many reasons, our family supports it, but access is our primary reason.
Here's a brief video that Elsa and I filmed with the Citizens Committee of the library to raise awareness of accessibility issues that we face when we come to the library.
We were so honored to share our perspective. PS: How stinkin' cute is Elsa?
Local friends, please consider voting YES on April 4. We thank you in advance for listening to our viewpoint!
Visit www.gpldnewbuilding.org for all the details on the referendum. The committee has done an excellent job making its case. Now every vote counts!
UPDATE: The referendum passed - by just 89 votes. Phew!! Always stand up and be counted!
