Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
These are powerful and compelling words for the basis of a democracy, and in my experience, very much a work in progress.
The Connecticut Citizen Research Group (CCRG), an activist consumer protection and social justice force in the state, is an organization committed to protecting and expanding this creed. CCRG is a firestorm for creating new and innovative solutions to make sure that the PEOPLE are first in the equation of our democracy, working tirelessly to beat back the forces that want to concentrate wealth and power for the few at the expense of us all.
On May 15th, 2016 I will ride in the NYC 100 mile Gran Fondo Bike Race on behalf of this extraordinary organization, dedicated to the hope and promise that our democracy will always "Put People First". Will you support me in this effort? I am asking for ANY size of donation- from $10 to $5,000- all are needed and all are welcome.
I have an additional challenge, for you AND for me. I have set a goal to finish this race in 7 hours. If I am able to successfully complete this journey in anything less than this time (yes-6:59 does count)- I ask that you DOUBLE your pledge. Just for all of those who may be tempted to jump in, the 7 hour goal is AMBITIOUS--given that there is more than 8,000 feet of climbing!
Thank you in advance for your generous support and commitment to this effort!!
