Back in October 2011, I made up a fake political party called the Transparency Party. My first order of business was to screw the boardwalk. Read (October 24th, 2011)- OPINION: The boardwalk is like an old car (and why I want to screw the boardwalk). With that in mind, I am happy to see a grassroots movement with the same intention start up independently by one of our readers (See: Screw The Boardwalk on Facebook).
Let’s face it, we all want to screw the boardwalk. The boardwalk screws us with broken boards, flat tires, high maintenance costs, raised nails and splinters. Why can’t we have a turn?
The good folks over at Screw the Boardwalk have done an impressive job building up support for the cause. 119 people in a week isn’t too shabby, but it’s not enough.If this is really going to happen though, they need our support. They made good on their promise and have reached out to the city asking that they make the event happen. For the city to agree to do this, they’re going to need to see an overwhelming amount of support.
Are you ready to step up for your community? Head on over to the facebook page and hit ‘like’. They’ll keep you posted about the progress being made and how you can get involved. This is the definition of grassroots, people. Get on board (no pun intended), won’t you?
