We Are New Albany came together last year as the principled local counterweight to Mayor Jeff Gahan’s putsch (the hostile takeover of public housing), and to give public housing residents a voice in their future.
Gahan acted as he did because he had the power to do so, reasoning there would be only token opposition to his opportunism. He was mistaken; there’s nothing especially “democratic” in any of it, and the best way to remind him of this fact is the exercise of one’s vote.
April 9 is the last day to register to vote in the May 8 primary. Here’s the information about WANA’s event this Saturday, one in a series of mobilizations aimed at delivering a message to Gahan and his functionaries: “No demolition without a plan to replace!”
It maybe the first time you’ve ever registered to vote or the first time in a long time. This is the time to be heard.
We are New Albany is sponsoring a one time event. The Political Social is a relaxed social that will be the best thing you’ve done. Come talk to State and Local Candidates about topics and concerns that effect you and your Community. Enjoy appetizers and light refreshments. Volunteers will be on site to help you get registered to vote. Transportation provided if needed.
