Who Keeps Us Informed?

by on December 29, 2015

I’ve lived in town for over 30 years.  For all of those years, I never got a personal letter from the Board of Education, the Board of Finance, the Board of Selectmen, or any other board in town to “inform” me.

I read the newspaper daily, and if there is an issue that interests me, I read the respective board’s minutes and even attended meetings now and then.  When our children were in school we did get information from school about various issues through notices.  I signed up for agenda and minutes publication emails on the town website, and the links to those things just show up in my inbox.

Nothing in town is done in secret.  Whatever issue we are dealing with in town is covered extensively, and you don’t even have to leave your house to find out about it.  It is our responsibility to remain informed; it is not up to someone else to inform us.
