INTRODUCING THE COMMON SENSE RESTORATION PROJECT:
The East Walpole baker who took a stand against food-stamp fraud at the Braintree Farmers Market last year by refusing to accept EBT cards for her whoopie pies and pastries is now starting her own political movement.
It’s called the Common Sense Restoration Project.
“We’re going to show these guys we’re paying attention and that we do care what’s happening with our tax dollars,” said Andrea Taber, the owner of the Ever So Humble Pie Co., who captured national attention after the Herald broke the story of her refusal to accept EBT cards for her confections at the Braintree Farmers Market.
The first meeting at the bakery drew 75 people a few weeks ago, Taber said. The next session is slated for April 16 from 7 to 9 p.m., featuring guest speakers state Reps. Shaunna O’Connell and Keiko Orrall.
“It’s become like the Liberty Tree Tavern,” Taber said. “Everybody’s saying, ‘What are we going to do about our country?’ There’s just no common sense.”
