Urgent! Carla Howell needs you to Phone and Email Right Now!

Kay Pirello from the Carla Howell team has asked for assistance from all and sundry:


NECN informed us that, although WPI invited Carla Howell to be in the gubernatorial debate on October 1st, and although she accepted their invitation, the media consortium covering the debate is now waffling and claiming the decision is up in the air.

Please contact the below people at the bottom of this email ASAP and urge them to stand by WPI’s ecision to include Carla Howell.

Below is a copy of the letter Carla Howell faxed to each of them earlier today.

If they exclude Carla Howell from this debate it will cause Carla Howell for Governor and Carla owell’s Ballot Question 1 grave damages.

Please CALL RIGHT NOW to URGE them to include Carla Howell!

Then any you can’t reach, please email your own personal message to them.

Thank you!
