Chair Jonathan Cohn urges YES on the Fair Share Amendment

The August Fenway News features a Guest Opinion written by Jonathan and West Fens neighbor Leslie Pond. The YES on 1 Amendment, which is coming up for a vote on the November ballot, will mean “high-quality, affordable public education, pre-K through college; reliable, accessible, and green public transit; and well-maintained roads and bridges” across the Commonwealth.

The authors make the case that the Fair Share represents a unique opportunity to build equity in full dimension. They propose a host of ways citizens can lend their support:

  • join on phone bank or canvassing event
  • share the many benefits of the Amendment with friends and family
  • write a letter to the editor
  • go to and sign up to volunteer

And vote YES on November 8th!
