Make Your Voice Heard on 3 to 5 Selectmen Today

Yesterday, about 30 of us went to the State House to testify on the move from three to five selectmen.  This is far from a done deal.  If you support the measure, and quite frankly even if you don't, now is the time to send email to the two representatives on the elections committee that are required to get the bill to the floor for passage.  Below is my letter.  Feel free to copy or simply reference this posting in an email. Thanks   Senator Barry R. Finegold…See More

Town Meeting Strikes Out

Our political leadership struck out at Town Meeting. Here is the play by play…..Strike One – Lack of preparedness on the budgetStrike Two – Drobinski and O’Brien blocking Haarde from assuming the Selectmen’s ChairStrike Three – The town meeting “after party” and ensuing police involvement. Strike One – the budget.The budget discussion was very tough to follow.  Once again, voters were handed sheets of paper with revisions to the budget made just before the meeting.  Of all the budget line items…See More

This diversity is needed to solve what I think are the three core issues our town leadership has failed to solve over the past 10 years:Reliable funding for our schools40B developmentHighly transparent government.School funding is an annual exercise in voter roulette. The current leadership has…See More
