Override Campaign Calls to Supporters

Yes for Reading, the town’s official ballot campaign for a Proposition 2 ½ Override, is making history. If the residents turn out to vote, they can retain the traditional lifestyle they deserve and ensure a prosperous future for the town.

Yes for Reading by the numbers:

  • More than 300 volunteers
  • More than 4,000 residents committed to voting Yes on April 3rd
  • 50 letters to the editor and testimonials to date in support of the override, including public endorsement from a State Senator
  • Unanimous support from all 5 Board of Selectmen and all 6 members of the School Committee
  • More than 9,000 postcards sent
  • Nearly 5,000 flyers handed out
  • 600 Lawn signs displayed around town
  • Nearly 1,000 followers on Facebook and 1,500 email subscribers

“But despite all of this, history shows that the number of people who go to the polls and vote was ALWAYS the deciding factor,” said Erin Gaffen, co-chair of Yes for Reading.

“Looking at similar towns, the margin between winning and losing an override was just hundreds of votes,” said Michele Sanphy, co-chair of Yes for Reading. “We hope that the community will join together to support our town and vote Yes on April 3rd, 2018.”
