An Innovative High Tech Plan to Reach
All Voters in Key Legislative Districts
As most of you know by now, a smart meter bill to promote customer meter choice has been introduced in the Michigan House by Rep. Gary Glenn. The proposed legislation, HB 4916, has bipartisan support, including 8 Republicans and 4 Democrats.
If this bill is to become law, house members and particularly members of the House Energy Committee must hear from their constituents. Educating the public on the harm caused by smart meters has been a long process. Too many still do not understand what a smart meter is or why they should be concerned. We have had particular difficulty getting our message out to younger voters. These folks often seem to spend more time on their electronic devices than they do on more traditional modes of communication.
A plan has been launched to get our message in front of all who voted in 2014 in key districts. Andrea McNinch, building on a proposal first put forward by David Lonier, and also drawing on her experience using high tech software in her business, has offered her services to make this campaign the kind that will reach many we have had difficulty reaching in the past.
A small group of us met on 10/23 to hear these proposals by David and Andrea. Donations will be needed to help pay for the direct mail part of this campaign. David Lonier has agreed to act as treasurer for this purpose. If you can help please contact him at (248) 373-9111 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay tuned for further announcements!
