Oxford: Educating for Change Fair, A Request

Friends and Allies,

I had hoped to get out a special "Extraordinary Session Edition" of the JMO4Rep Update electronic newsletter, but I've had too many competing priorities to manage that these past few weeks. So I'll just send this brief announcement about an important event, the 7th Annual Education for Change Curriculum Fair, plus this request:

Please keep up your advocacy to save the Circuit Breaker that provides much needed assistance for low-income seniors and people with disabilities. Your calls, visits, letters, and e-mails are having an effect! For more information, see:

I have several very demanding events on my schedule for this week (Veto Session, Special Session, a speech for Constitution Day in Rolla, a class I'm co-leading at Eden Seminary, etc.), so I welcome any positive energy or prayers you can send out to the Universe for me and my House and Senate colleagues. I often feel my allies and friends "holding me up" when my spirit/energy sags. Thank you for all you do to support me.

From: [Rebecca Rogers]

Please distribute this call widely to your networks, colleagues, lists, etc.
