How did Day 1 of Midhurst’s Petition Blitz work out?

In a word: brilliant.

I dropped down to the Midhurst Community Hall to say hello.

My notes:

  • people were lined up outside at 3:15 for a 4:00 pm start,
  • +90% sign up as new Midhurst Ratepayers Association, MRA members,
  • lots of talk about how 10,000 sprawl homes will drive taxes sky-high,
  • great signs along St. Vincent, very future-oriented discussions,
  • widespread feeling that the MRA has outstanding leadership,
  • increased appreciation that forced growth is a chronic malady, and
  • 2 or 3 people mentioned the destruction of farmland (+1,300 acres).

Why not come out Friday 4 to 8 pm or Saturday 10 am to 2 pm? The coffee will be on, meet the Midhurst leaders that are doing something to build your Township.

Everyone in the family is welcome.
