Blue Hill Library
In attendance: Robert Grant, Kevin Hunt, Phil Caper, Jeff Milliken, Susanne Forest, Diana Page, Oscar Ruiz, Sam Bergman, Joe Lendvai, Lynn Cheney
|AGENDA ITEMS||WHO||DISCUSSION & NOTES|
|Discussed the first meeting of the Healthcare Task Force in Augusta on 12/20. Diana Page, Oscar Ruiz, Lynn Cheney, Phil Caper and Robert Grant (?) plan to be there.
Collected $270 donation to Maine AllCare from the Downeast Chapter.
Displayed Tom VanBuren’s nifty banner holder.
|Film showing||We watched “Now is the Time” and a short Washington State YouTube video: “Healthcare, We Can Fix It.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqqrmtxhyys
The group’s consensus was that “Fix-It” delivers a more compelling message than “Now is the Time” and that the 11-minute Washington video is an excellent resource in situations where time is limited.
|Data entry for yellow supporter cards||Distributed a large quantity of yellow support cards that need to be entered into Nation Builder. Data entry volunteers are Jeff Milliken, Kevin Hunt, Joe Lendvai, Lynn Cheney and Hunt Gressitt.|
