Re: Town Meeting

Terrible town meeting. Poorly led. Awful outcome on the marijuana pot shops. 99 people who jammed the hall and then left after the vote was taken! Can't believe we as a town have voted not to ban the sale of recreational mj, unlike the hundreds of other towns and municipalities that have.

sorry, used the wrong adjective 'erstwhile' in describing the current Town Collector, Patrick Della Russo. Erstwhile means former, he is the current Collector extraordinare. (I don't know where the spell check button is on this site!).

Re: Charter review committee proposals

If you were able to get 1,000 people out to TM for the Ocean Shores project, can you pls rally these people to come out again next Monday night? or to go to the public meetings and ask their questions and if they don't like the answers, to Vote No.
