Today's Downsizer-Dispatch . . .
We've launched the promised RTBA Coalition, and we already have our first member. More-and-more media interviews are being booked (see latest below). We're getting very close to rolling out the MeetUp groups for the "No Legislation Without Representation Conference" and the invasion of Capitol Hill. Our next piece of Downsize DC legislation, aimed at forcing Congress to play it's proper role in the creation of new regulations, is also nearly ready. And we're aiming to have a record setting month in March. But before we can move forward we need to take care of some unfinished business.
I feel safe in claiming that no other organization does so much with so little. Our budget is still small. We're still a new organization. We haven't reached critical mass in terms of funding yet. But we have the sense that that day is just around the corner. Meanwhile, the small amounts we need to function we REALLY need. We still need to raise $2,000 to finish paying for what we did in February, so we can roll forward into March. There are only two days left in February. Today and tomorrow. We need to raise that $2,000 in the next 48-hours.
Do you like what we're doing? Do you want to see it continue? Can you help make that possible? To make a contribution or start a monthly pledge click here.
