There's an opportunity to make your voice heard to the Obama Administration at Change.gov. Given the Lyme community's prowess in using the Internet to foster change, we should be able to FLOOD the site with stories, suggestions, and appeals for help. I suggest EVERYONE go to the site, register, click on the CITIZEN'S BRIEFING BOOK, search "LYME' and share your idea!
As of tonight, there are reasonable suggestions that Lyme activists have posted that are being voted down! This should not be happening. When I looked for the entry someone had placed for the federal Lyme legislation, it appeared it had been removed.
WE NEED EVERYONE'S HELP TO GO TO THE SITE, VOTE ON LYME-RELATED SUGGESTIONS, AND LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS. THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY THAT SHOULD NOT BE WASTED.
IT APPEARS THAT THOSE IN LEADERSHIP ROLES IN THE LYME COMMUNITY EITHER DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT, OR HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO INFORM THE LYME COMMUNITY OF THIS OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE **INDIVIDUAL** VOICES HEARD. THIS IS AN ERROR OF JUDGEMENT IN MY OPINION. I DO NOT KNOW WHY WE HAVE NOT BEEN INFORMED THROUGH THE USUAL CHANNELS.
