Need A Ride on Election Day? No Worries, Ross Jacobs Has You Covered.

ross jacobs profileThis afternoon I received a press release from The Committee to Elect Ross Jacobs, wherein the folks supporting Ross are offering free rides to Ward 1 voters on election day.

From the press release:

Ross Jacobs has announced this afternoon that his campaign team will be offering free transportation to the advance polls and on election day to voters in ward 1. When asked why he launched this initative Ross said, “it’s a chance for me to live up to my promise of making this election the most quantifiable in wood buffalo history”

So there you have it. Now there’s just one more excuse that won’t work for you when you try to tell folks why you can’t vote on election day.

For those interested in taking Ross up on the offer, go over to http://www.rossjacobs.ca/ and fill out the registration form.

Please all, get out and vote! Make an impact, make a change, make a future.
