Petition to Gov. Patrick - Advocacy Day: January 18th

Dear Governor Patrick,

I share your love for and appreciation of Massachusetts' diverse, robust, and inspiring creative community.

I, joined by my fellow residents, ask for your support for MASSCreative’s request to increase the Commonwealth’s investment in the arts and cultural community by raising the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s FY2014 budget by $3 million to a total of $12.5 million.

Just ten years ago, the Commonwealth invested more than $19 million annually into the creative community through the MCC’s budget.  Please support this budget request and provide the resources to build more vibrant and connected communities across the Commonwealth.
