Since 2008, I’ve maintained a “political” email list. Mostly monthly I send an email about events, activities, and actions that can be taken. I sometimes attach reports of events or activities I go to. I try to keep the emails short and you can ask to be removed any time. For more details, click the “Terms & Conditions” link below.
