We are now under four weeks to the Silver Line Millage election on May 5th and it’s time to catch a cold.
I’ve heard tell that we’re all connected to each other by six degrees of separation or less. Some have said that we’re even closer via the Internet. With Facebook and Twitter and all the other such new-fangled things, we’ve got to be only two or three mouse clicks away from each other.
So what are you waiting for? How about helping to start a virtual virus?
I can see it now. Every Inbox in Kent County catching the Silver Line fever within a day or two?
It’s easy. No coughing or sneezing required. Just point and click and you’re passing on the germ that will lead to the next generation of public transportation service in our community brought to us by The Rapid/ITP–the Silver Line.
So, pass it on!
And if you really want to hang out with other infected folks, try on some Friends of Transit volunteer work. The next three Saturdays (starting on April 18th) will be filled with “lit drops” throughout our area. In between times, many of us will be making a few phone calls to likely voters.
Finally, if you really want to infect the community, why not write a letter to the Editor of the Grand Rapids Press? It’s easy–just send an e-mail of 200 words or less to firstname.lastname@example.org and the virus will spread far and wide.
Can’t beat the old fashioned viral infection going on.
So, pass on the Silver Line virus to your family, friends and neighbors! May 5th is fast approaching and we need our entire community to have the Silver Line fever by then!
All for today.
