1. Help organize MEA members in your school, in your community, and in your legislative district to lobby members of the Maine State Legislature in support of MEA's Legislative priorities;
2. Help organize MEA members in your school, in your community, and in your legislative district to elect "pro-public education" candidates to political office during "Campaign 2002; and
3. If the MEA initiates a statewide signature gathering effort in support of a "Citizens' Referendum" to increase state funding for public schools in Maine, you will be willing to help organize MEA members in your school, in your community, and in your legislative district to gather signatures and generate community support of such a referendum.
