Sen. Dan Wolf in negotiations with Ethics Commission, *Rally in Boston cancelled*
UPDATE: Susan Truitt (event organizer) has decided to cancel the rally tomorrow in Boston because of recent developments regarding the Ethics Commission and has stated the following:
The Massachusetts Ethics Commission and our State Senator Dan Wolf are now in productive negotiations which could clear the way for Dan to stay in the State Senate and then run for Governor.Read more about this
We do not have a victory for those of us who think the Commission’s ruling is wrong. But we do have the beginning of what could be a sensible solution. Now is not the time for more heat. Let us pray that cool heads prevail.
So the rally we’ve planned for tomorrow, Thursday, August 29th is not taking place. No buses to Boston, no speakers on the State House steps. I honestly believe that the many letters to the Commission, the newspaper stories and editorials, and the sharp criticism of just plain folks like us have been a strong factor in turning a dispute into a negotiation.
But keep my email and my phone number handy. I’m keeping yours. Who knows what challenges are ahead! I’ve heard from so many people who care about our voting rights and about good government. (Yes, we filled the buses!) But freedom doesn’t come free. We have to continue to work for it.
