“Rally to Keep the 5th Intact” on Saturday May 21, 2011

This invitation is also posted over at Left in Lowell. It’s important enough to post here as well. As someone who was a facilitator in the “Save the 5th” effort back in 2001 when the then Speaker of the House had the 5th obliterated from the redistricting map, I want to encourage people of the 5th to attend and support this rally. BTW – the host and emcee back then was former Congressman Jim Shannon and we met at Doubletree! (The gathering was bi-partisan as was an outdoor rally at Lowell City Hall.)
