VID Visibility Day Tablings Have Been a Great Success – One More to Come
We will be holding the final VID Visibility Day of the 2019 year in two weeks on Saturday, November 2nd.
On the West Side we will be at Abingdon Sq. (corner Hudson & Bethune Streets) from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM. On the East Side we’ll be at the park in front of St. Marks Church (2nd Ave. & 10th Street) from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM.
Help collect signatures on postcards going to Governor Cuomo urging him to sign gun safety legislation that is presently sitting on his desk; register people to vote; inform people of early voting (Sunday, 11/3 is the last day); give out info on the five ballot proposals and sign up new VID members.
Please contact Tony Hoffmann with the time and place you would like to go to if participating. Erik Bottcher and Tony will be organizing the Abingdon Sq. Visibility site and David Siffert and Jen Hoppe will be organizing the St. Marks Visibility site.
On Saturday, Oct. 19th we had amazing success. Seventeen VID’ers staffed the two sites. Two people joined VID and numerous others took our literature and were seriously considering becoming involved. We got 283 signatures on the gun reform postcards going to Governor Cuomo and registered a number of people to vote. We also had a lot of fun with our Jelly Bean Poll. 76 people voted to impeach and remove President Trump. 3 people voted for an inquiry only and 1 person voted to impeach only. This highly valid and scientifically authenticated poll will continue in two weeks as long as people stop eating the jelly beans. Below are some pictures I thought you might like to see.
