ORMA Virtual Leadership Summit

October 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We are writing to invite you to the ORMA Virtual Leadership Summit to be held on Sunday, October 11, 7:00-8:00 pm. (Zoom link with meeting reminder will be provided closer to the Summit).

The focus of this Summit meeting will be on Ranked Choice Voting and the campaign to pass Question 2, the Ranked Choice Voting ballot initiative in MA. Two progressive candidates for Congress in CD4, Jesse Mermell who came in second by only about a thousand votes and Ihssane Lecky, our endorsed candidate, whose votes combined with Jesse’s would have demolished the rest of the field, will each be speaking. How sad for Congressional District 4 that we do not have Ranked Choice Voting, yet. We are glad to see, however, that Sen. Elizabeth Warren has come out strongly in favor of RCV.

We will also spend time at the Summit focusing on the national elections and what we in ORMA can do to support and elect progressives and anti-fascists.

Meanwhile, we wish to call affiliates’ and members’ attention to the ORMA website Voting Reform page and the work of our allies. “How Does RCV Work?” If passed, Question 2 would implement Ranked Choice Voting for primary and general elections for all federal and state elections in Massachusetts, including for members of Congress, the Governor’s race, county offices like district attorney and sheriff, and all state legislative races. It would not however apply to the national presidential election, nor to municipal elections.

We are grateful for whatever you are doing between now and November 3.

And don’t forget to mark the Summit on your calendar! Sunday, October 11, 7:00 pm.

Hopefully,

The ORMA Coordinating Committee
