What Works: Civic Engagement

Dear Former Neighbors and Fellow Citizens: 

We are living in a time of great collective learning and increased civic engagement. Passing on some information from the group "Indivisible" for anyone seeking direction. 

https://indivisible.org/resource/not-call-members-arent

I have already sent my resistbot text.  And plan on following up with a rare personal thank you note.

I wish you peace within your heart, a song within your soul, and the courage to take a stand. 

Sincerely, 

Mari Tamburo

Recommended Read: WSJ Article On Bullies

I don't often read the "Wall Street Journal," but this seems useful, so I'm sharing.

Hope you are all doing well.

Call to Action: Justice for Breonna Taylor

Dear Friends and Concerned Citizens:

Breonna Taylor was murdered in her own home, a result of a late night police raid. 
Please take a few moments to assist the effort to end militarization of police forces in this country.
We cannot fix all the wrongs in this world, but we can do our part to raise awareness and bring some sense of relief to those left behind.

Marin County Public Health Update

http://nixle.us/BR44E

I encourage everyone to sign up for Nixle updates.
I have found them much more useful, timely and informative than Nextdoor.

Nextdoor has its benefits, and as a matter of fact, I was the second person to request that the Marin Sheriff connect to our community through ND. By all means, use what communication channels work well for you.

The important thing is to pay attention and be informed.

Be Well,
Mari

Are You Concerned About Covid-19 ?

Found this in my internet travels:


Hope it helps. 
Again, please cover your nose and mouth when you have to leave the house.

Best Regards,
Mari

p.s. I am still a registered Democratic Primary candidate for POTUS. I guess you could say I am running an unorthodox campaign. Thanks for understanding that I am doing the best I can under these circumstances.

If you have a policy question, please join me on my public facebook page, twitter or instagram at

Thanks!
Be well.

Join us November 3rd, 2019. Mari Mack and Livin' Like Kings at The Rancho : 4 pm

Dear Former Neighbors, Future Neighbors, Friends, Associates, et al.:

When I started our neighborhood Google group in August of 2010, my intent and purpose was then as it is now: to use my communication skills to help us understand what was happening around us, to encourage more civic participation and untimately, to improve the local planning process, or at least how these projects are communicated.  

That said, it was the start of a personal journey I never expected to take, and I certainly never expected to end up running for public office of any type, least of all, President. However, at this time in our nation's story, we truly need bold change. People are tired of the lies and "business as usual."

I am working toward that change by not asking you for money. I think there is too much money being spent on political marketing campaigns and not enough money being spent on things that matter. I don't know about you, but I am tired of 24/7 politics. I am tired of 24/7 chaos. 

Please join us in on November 3rd, 2019. 

Our band, Mari Mack & Livin' Like Kings is playing at Rancho Nicasio on that date, which just so happens to be exactly one year to the date of our next Presidential election.

Link to Rancho Nicasio: Make a reservation
Treat yourself to an evening out, and don't worry about ordering a

Downbeat is 4:00 pm and we expect to be finished by 7:00. Hang around for a chat afterwards, if you like. Let us work together to create a more peaceful, more organic world. 

Sincerely, 
Mari 

p.s. If and when you have a few minutes, please go to the link below, read the very short blog post, and watch the animated video. It struck a chord with me and I felt compelled to share it:

World View: Green Projects That Can Scale

"Reij, Garrity and other scientists working on the ground knew what Wade and other political leaders did not: that farmers in Niger and Burkina Faso, in particular, had discovered a cheap, effective way to regreen the Sahel. They did so by using simple water harvesting techniques and protecting trees that emerged naturally on their farms."
