With election day around the corner, we’ve been witness to many great examples of FPF members offering to help get their neighbors to vote.
“I would love to help a couple of people who either don’t have a car or cannot drive, get to and from the polling booth next Tuesday. This would include pick-up at the person’s home, bringing them to the polling station, waiting for them to vote, and then driving them back home.” • Sonia in Williston
“If you or someone you know needs a ride to the polls November 6th – or needs a ride to Town Hall to get a ballot for early voting – please let me know. I am arranging to assist folks getting a ride.” • Jean in Reading
“When you read the postings in this forum about a hotly contested election for our local State Representative, all of them, no matter who the advocate is supporting, have been reasonable and respectful and I think it reflects well on the quality of the people who live here and the health of our community.” • Howard in Wells
All of us at Front Porch Forum encourage you to vote this election!
Invite your public officials not already involved on FPF to join the conversation!
Thoughtful discussion from Front Porch Forum members allows us to learn and connect with our neighbors.
“I have to admit, my favorite bits of FPF are the disagreements. I think arguments on FPF are really helpful. They bring to the surface issues that we don’t always talk about. Everyone gets a chance to gauge the opinions of their neighbors. It’s not hard to chime in. Every time there’s a chain of discussion posts–about panhandling, or dogs, or pedestrians and drivers, I learn something. For me, it’s good to know just how much I disagree, and why, and who I might occasionally agree with.
Consensus might be best, but disagreement is way better than silence. Thanks, to Front Porch Forum and everyone who takes the time to post their arguments.” • Glen, City Councilor in Montpelier
Neighbors and public officials appreciate having FPF!
“Front Porch Forum is a great conduit to communicate with neighbors and others in the local community. I appreciate Danby utilizing this forum for critical advisories, select board & planning commission transparent agendas & meeting minutes. In Danby approx. 48% of constituents are receiving information through this online venue, and recommend that FPF be elected as one avenue for posting Town official public notices, dates to comply, including dates & times of future foreclosure auctions etc.” • Don in Danby
“You must know by now how much I love and appreciate FPF. You are truly a transformative social media platform.”
• Jeff, Town Energy Coordinator, Richmond
