LWVMA Collects 4400 Signatures for Bottle Ballot Question

Posted June 14, 2014

Once again the League made a major contribution to the signature collection effort, with 4,426 signatures to contribute to the over 27,000 signatures collected by the coalition. This number gives us confidence that we will have the required 12,000 certified signatures. This was a tremendous team effort, congratulations to everyone involved!

We are heartened to see a recent Boston Globe’s editorial in support of the bill and a front page article,

Many thanks to these eighteen Leagues and the coordinators who contributed signatures:
