I'm about to hop on my bike and head downtown to get ready for the rally. Before I do, I want to say a couple things.
The support folks have shown for Sam in the last couple days has been astounding. Folks have offered up their help, their imagination and their inspiration. I'm overwhelmed by the number of people in our city who feel strongly that Sam Adams is a mayor worth fighting for, and whose absence from public life would be a tragedy for our city.
Special thanks to Marc Acito. He's been an unbelievable help to me today as I've been stuck at work. He's done all of the legwork for the rally tonight-- everything from gathering noise permits to renting generators to talking to the police to acquiring rally speakers-- and I can't thank him enough for all he's done to help the cause.
I'll see all of you tonight at City Hall, 5:30pm!
