Tiverton STOP is soliciting letters from East Bay residents who would be affected by a toll on the Sakonnet River Bridge.
At the group's Thursday night launch meeting at the Tiverton Town Hall, STOP organizers said they aim to send 5,000 to 6,000 personal letters to the governor and local legislators documenting the impact a toll would have on individual citizens, families and small businesses.
If you are interested in helping Tiverton STOP achieve its goal, you can pick up a template letter to mail or email to the governor and state legislators at the Town Hall or ask for an electronic copy by emailing TivertonStop@gmail.com. Tiverton STOP is asking any residents who contact the state representatives also send a letter in to the organization via email.
We want to know: What would a toll would really cost you and your family on a day-to-day basis? Do you cross over the bridge everyday? How would your business be affected?
