Opinion: 2013 Town Meeting A Big Disappointment

contribute's picture

I have been attending Town Meetings for about 40 years and this year’s Town Meeting was a big disappointment from beginning to end. When it was announced that one budget (both school and the rest of the town) was being proposed to make the meeting more expedient, it became obvious it was at the expense of the voter. It seemed this year that any past decisions made at other Town Meetings were no longer pertinent.
