GBCC at Boston City Hall

Thanks to Joel Wool for this overview of the day at City Hall:

If you in fact missed the trip to City Hall or want to review it, we had over 100 people attend, the video of the hearing is here.

 It made a big difference to have a crowd and as was evidenced in the hearing we eased some councilors' concerns with cooperatives while touting the benefits. A couple of things you can do to support the momentum going forward:-If you are a resident of or work or do business in Boston, please contact your city councilors or the entire city council* to thank them for holding a hearing (particularly frank.baker@boston.gov, josh.zakim@boston.gov) and urge their support for cooperative housing and business. It's okay to be short and sweet! If you attended and testified, consider emailing along the testimony‚Ķ-Please read and share Ivy Lee's piece in the Dig-Stand by for future action alerts-*Here's the full city council list:
