Just got this email from EqualityMaine within the past hour:
Today we received important information that the public hearing of our marriage bill has been changed to WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22 at the AUGUSTA CIVIC CENTER.
Given the overwhelming number of people on both sides who are planning to attend the hearing, the Legislature made the decision to move the location to the Augusta Civic Center on the
nearest available day, Wednesday April 22.
Now more than ever, we need you at the public hearing. RSVP to email@example.com. Include your name, address, and phone number.
This will be the most important day of the campaign outside the final vote. The media, legislators, governor, and the people of
Maine will be watching. We cannot let the opposition outnumber us on this critical day.
Please spread the word to your friends and family. This will be a family-friendly event, with activities and spaces for children
and their loved ones.
The hearing starts at 9 am. Doors open at 8 am. Large crowds are expected, please plan to arrive early.
Remember to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you RSVP, you will receive important details about the hearing.
We cannot win without you. See you on April 22.
This makes so much sense to have the public hearing at the Civic Center and far easier access than the Cony site.
For those who can attend, this is a straight shot on I-95, then get off at Exit 112 (old exit 31) onto Rts 8/11/27 South. This is also the same exit for Wal-Mart and all of the “Marketplace in Augusta” stores.
