We are sending this extra, mid-month email to give you some important information about an island climate-related vote and a special island film.   PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS!


If there were ever a year where your vote counts, this is the one. Make sure you vote.
This year’s race for Martha’s Vineyard Commission (MVC) is very important to local climate work. 
There is one commissioner, Ben Robinson, who has been working tirelessly on climate. Thanks to his dedication we now have an MVC Climate Action Task Force.  
Because of the way the MVC voting process works, and the fact that Ben is running in a town with 3 candidates, we stand to lose our strongest climate advocate if we do not vote strategically!

Tips for Voting Strategically

* Vote only for the candidate(s) you strongly support. Voting for all 9 on the ballot may distort the results and dilute your support for your chosen candidates.
To support island climate work, the strongest thing is to vote only for Ben Robinson.
We normally would not be so pointed in our support for one candidate, but, the work of this particular Commissioner is key to the future of island climate action.
The MVC voting process is complicated. If you have any questions after reading this please feel free to reach out to us at ICAN.

An Island Fishing and Farming Short
