I should be spending this time looking for a job but need a definite in my life right now. I really can't believe I'm at this point in my life. Where did all the jobs go!!

Thanks in advance.

Go to Social Services, you can see if you qualify on line with E-Pass. I filled out application, brought it with me along with Mortgage statement, Property tax bill and homeowners insurance bill. Anyone who lives with you, that eat meals with you, bring their info too.

Has anyone mentioned gathering in Raleigh and letting everyone see us ALL in person? I know I don't have anything else to do. We should be able to get some local news media attention. Any thoughts?

Both parties agree on this bill, so we need to hold them responsible. Aren't they there for us? We should be able to get at least 1000 people down there!

I cannot get to Raleigh, but I will be at the rally in Charlotte, with Alexandra Sirota. It's at the ESC off of Albemarle Rd. at 11:30 Monday, please anyone who is near Charlotte show up.

It appears there are about 200 of us fighting for 37,000 + of us... how do we reach ALL of us to unite? How do we let the rest of tens of thousands know they can stand up and let their voice be heard!!! Should we call the ESC offices and ask to have people referred to this site? Suggestions...

I'm thinking the facebook page is the best bet. I have 4 other people going with me to the rally in Charlotte.

I'm thinking we need atleast one coordinator living in the Raleigh area just because they will be more likely to know the lay of the land there.

Could we try someone like Monica LaLibertie on WRAL. Isn't she an advocate for the people? Maybe WRAL could put something on their website.

I'm still trying to figure out how an amendment to H597 about EB fix was not germane. But attaching EB to the budget is.
