Don’t Let Comcast Outsource Community TV

To the Editor:

An Open Letter to Supporters of Public Access Channel 19

We are kicking off our StayLocal19 grassroots initiative and need your help to spread the word! The next Cable Advisory Board meeting is set for Tuesday, August 24, 7 pm at the Westbrook Town Hall, 866 Boston Post Road (Route1), in the large meeting room. We need your support to:

1) Get Citizens to attend the Aug. 24 Cable Advisory Board Meeting – Please reach out to your neighbors, friends, selectman, and concerned citizens. We need volunteers (team captains) from each town to lead the charge. There are various talking points below to urge folks to get involved to stop the “outsourcing” of the management of our channels/studio to an organization outside of our community. If an interested citizen can not attend the meeting, please have them write a letter, sign it, and bring it with you to the meeting.

2) Sign our StayLocal19 online petition – This is our grassroots call-to-action! Please urge all concerned citizens to go online and sign our petition at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/staylocal19/

3) Write a Letter to the Editor ASAP

Everyone’s help is greatly appreciated. Let’s get this initiative started!
