VOTE AGAINST THE ATLANTIC YARDS ON SEPTEMBER 12th


Dear Friends,

I am writing to you because, you - like me - oppose the proposed Ratner
arena/highrise project. In our opposition to that project, there is
something very key and timely we can do.

*IF WE CAN GET THE WORD OUT VIA EMAIL TO EVERYONE WE KNOW,
THEN BILL BATSON WILL WIN THE 57th ASSEMBLY DISTRICT RACE ON SEPT 12.*

This assembly race has greater impact on the Atlantic Yards fight than
any other race this year. Other politicians and most importantly Sheldon
Silver will have to listen to Bill as the District's rep, when he is
making his decisions about the project.

Please forward this email to every single person you know who is opposed
to the Ratner project, and ask them to forward it to everyone they know.

That way this will get to as many people as possible in the 57th
Assembly District.

There are 5 things we each need to do

1) *PRIMARY DAY*
Take the day off from work on Primary Day, Sept 12 to volunteer with the
Batson campaign.

*2) VOLUNTEER*
Between now and election day the campaign needs volunteers to help do
door-to-door canvassing for Batson and phone calling for Batson to
secure voters. If you can only give a few days or hours September 9, 10,
11 are key days. (You will not be sent out alone; and if you can't
handle canvassing, then make phone-calls).

Please - please let's each put in at least 4 hours before primary day ;
Bill does not have money for "paid volunteers" to do this.

*3) VOTE*
Come out and vote on Sept 12 for Batson and the candidates listed below,
and urge everyone you know to do the same

*4) DONATE NOW*
This coming Tuesday Councilwoman Letitia James will endorse Bill Batson
at a press conference!!

If the Batson campaign can do a mailing about this, it will seal the
deal!

But they can't send a mailing unless they can raise an additional 4 - 6K

If you, like us, believe that Councilwoman Tish James' endorsement can
make the difference, then donate now!!

Visit www.batsonforbrooklyn.com to make an online donation and get the
word out about the endorsement.

*5) SPREAD THE WORD*
Forward this email and ask your friends to do the same

To VOLUNTEER contact:
Batson For Brooklyn
Abeni J. Crooms, Deputy Campaign Manager
767 Washington Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11238

PS - other candidates who oppose the Atlantic Yards proposal are:
Chris Owens for Congress (11th Congressional District)
Ken Diamondstone for State Senate (25th Senate District)
Charles Barron for Congress (10th Congressional District)

Your friends, Daniel Goldstein and Shabnam Merchant


HEY YOU GUYS...
THESE ARE THE FOLKS THAT COMMUNITY AVERAGE FOLKS WILL NOT BE VOTING FOR COME SEPTEMBER 12TH...SEPTEMBER 13TH OR ANY DAY. IT WOULD BE FRIGHTENING IF THEY WERE TO GET INTO OFFICE.

Community Average Folk...VOTE in the next election wisely for the candidate that you believe will support, defend and fight for your issues. Not just because they are against the Bruce Ratner’s Community Benefits Agreement: Atlantic Yards Project. All of the above are going to get votes just because they are against the project.

Do not under estimate the voting power of the Community Average Folk. Public housing communities can make a big difference in the election. All that is needed is a little motivation and Community Average Folks are starting to get fed up with this rhetoric and BS.
