Watch Out For Election Polling Scams
It’s happening in many cities and towns in the state and especially in Boston. 
Elections Commissioner Warns Residents of Fraudulent Phone Polling Claiming to be from the Boston Election Department
Geraldine Cuddyer, Chair of Boston’s Board of Election Commissioners, reminds all voters that the Election Department does not conduct any kind of telephone polling or surveys of voters.
“It has been brought to my attention over the weekend that voters are receiving telephone calls regarding voter preferences. The callers are identifying themselves as being from the Boston Election Department,” Cuddyer said. “Voters should be aware that any caller conducting a survey, and claiming to be Election Department personnel, is engaging in fraudulent behavior. The Election Department staff is working around the clock getting ready for the September 24 Preliminary Election. The Election Department prides itself on conducting fair and impartial elections, and I take great offense at anyone misusing the Department’s name.”

Join me for the 5th Annual Harvest Fest – 10/19/13
Hi Friends!

Greetings from the woods in Western Mass. I hope this email finds you and yours well.

As you may have heard, Somerville Local First (where I serve on the board), is holding its annual fundraiser and tasting event, Harvest Fest, on Saturday, October 19 at the Arts at the Armory. This has become one of the best events of the year: you get a taste from a bunch of local restaurants and get to sample some of the best in local brews (all brewers are from Massachusetts this year!). All for only $35!

I’m writing to encourage you to come out to support Somerville Local First while having fun with friends new and old. In addition to the usual delicious food and beer tastings, we’re hosting a beer garden, will have games set up and have an excellent lineup of local musicians set to perform. This is the major annual fundraiser for the organization, and filling the room is vital for our financial success over the coming year. Think of this as the easiest donation you could make–support SLF and have an amazing time with your friends.

You can purchase your tickets here:

Please let me know if you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer them.

Hope to see you there!

Warm Regards
