As some of you NeighborMedia blogs readers remember, on January 7, 2012, this NeighborMedia correspondent, reported on the new website launched by the Alliance of Cambridge Tenants (ACT). Well, today I’m proud to make another announcement concerning ACT. The Alliance of Cambridge Tenants has changed the venue of it’s office, no longer being located at the Manning Apt., now it has been relocated to the Jackson Gardens housing complex, on the corner of Prospect St., and 259 Harvard St. downstairs in the basement, two blocks north of Massachusetts Ave., going towards Somerville, MA. ACT's’ post office box remains the same, it ‘s address is “Alliance of Cambridge Tenants (ACT), P.O. Box 391078. ACT can be reached by telephone at 617-499.7031, e-mailed at firstname.lastname@example.org. ACT has announced that it is grateful to the Manning Tenant Council for sharing their office with them for the past three years.
The first order of business in ACT’s new location and home, was to close the nomination period for it’s up coming Board of Directors (BOD) Election, to be held on April 10, 2012. A candidates night will be held for the community to come out, and meet the candidates, and listen to them give brief oral presentations, on March 2O, 2012 at 6:00 PM, at the Cambridge Senior Center, directly across the street from Cambridge’s City Hall. Ballots will be mailed out to Tenants and Residents of the Cambridge Housing Authority (CHA) for this BOD election, they can then be mailed back, or drop off at designated polling places, posted on ACT’s website (www.actcambridge.org). I’m running for re-election to a seat on ACT’s board, my position statement along with the other candidates will also appear on the BOD ballots, they can also be found posted on ACT’s website. Be sure to check them out and come and visit ACT at it’s new home.
