City in Need of Election Judges

Are you interested in serving as an election judge, or do you know someone who is? Election judges are essential to a successful Election Day. They are the officials that staff local polling places, administer election procedures, and ensure that the rights of voters are protected on Election Day. Serving as an election judge provides an opportunity to learn about the elections process and is a great service to our community.
 
Although hundreds of people are already signed up to be election judges, Minneapolis is still in need of several hundredmore judges to staff up for Election Day. Election judges open and close the polls, register and sign in voters, distribute and collect ballots, operate voting equipment, and record and certify vote totals.
 
To be an election judge, you must be:
 
  • Eligible to vote in Minnesota.
  • Willing to attend a two-hour training class
  • Able to work either a full day (6 a.m. – 9 p.m.) or a part-time shift (6 a.m. – 2 p.m. or 2 p.m. – 9 p.m.) on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Keep Our Streets Clean

The Fulton Environment Committee is sponsoring a yard sign campaign aimed at keeping leaves and other yard debris out of the streets.  Any debris that gets raked or blown into the streets goes straight into the stormwater sewer system.  This debris then produces algae and other growth in our lakes, rivers and streams.  If you would like a yard sign, please contact Mary Nolte at 612.922.1591.

Message from MSP FairSkies Coalition

Hi all:

It has been a few months since we got the MAC to vote for partial implementation of the RNAV technology. Since this vote, many of us have been busy behind the scenes setting up a new community group and website to organize for the long term. This group, called MSP FairSkies Coalition, is comprised of neighbors from the area looking to better understand the issues facing us and while continuing to put pressure on those officials who can impact change.

Check us out at www.mspfairskies.org. Tell you friends.

The website is a good resource for our campaign, including a great refresher video on the issues, compiled by one of our dedicated residents who spent hundreds of hours analyzing the issues from all angles.

Access this video directly at: www.mspfairskies.org/learn

The FAA and MAC have been busy too, voting to expand the airport terminals to accommodate higher capacity and working to establish a communications/PR plan to convince us that the RNAV implementation is good for our neighborhoods.

So, it is time to get all of you involved again.

We have compiled an announcement email that is designed to go to all the key representatives from Federal, state, and local offices. The goal of this announcement is to get the word out that we are all still here and we want a long a long term solution to this airport situation, not a short term Band-Aid. Every time someone signs the announcement, the representatives get an email. Our goal is to flood the in-boxes, just as we did for the November vote.

Sign the “announcement” at: www.mspfairskies.org/make-your-voice-heard.

Unfortunately, this will not be the last time we ask for your help. This issue will continue for the next couple of years, and we will need for all of you to find some time to get involved at key points – a small price to pay for being able to live in our neighborhoods. By signing the announcement, you will also be added to our mailing list so we can keep you informed.

Thanks for your support and we hope you join us for the next chapter.

Best.

Steve Kittleson
