Also, a peek into Town Meeting attendance
Good Morning and Happy Sunday! We’re back for another fun and exciting week in Burlington.
I’ve been talking a little about January Town Meeting, and I wanted to let you know that it begins (and hopefully ends! on January 23, 2023. As you might already know, we have a representative Town Meeting, where 126 of your neighbors (18 per precinct) gather together to review the articles proposed in the Warrant and then vote on them. Attendance, however, has averaged about 86% for the last 3 years. You can see attendance on the Town Clerk’s website, and I try to post it here, as well, though I’m a little behind.
Take a look at who your TMMs are and what their attendance record is. We all deserve representatives that will show up for us, and this is something to take into consideration when voting—especially in contested races.
More about Town Meeting and the election in the coming days and weeks.
