Now the serious political maneuvering begins. I’m talking not about the conventions this summer but instead about our Annual Town Meeting (ATM) on Tuesday, May 3, at 7:30 p.m. in the Clune Center auditorium. We all absolutely must be there that night!
Hopefully, the same folks who filled Middlebrook auditorium to overflowing last month to support the school budget (as it was before the Board of Finance cut $400,000), and the many others of like mind, will now actually vote. But ballot-box voting on Saturday, May 7th isn’t enough: We all need to be politically savvy “operatives” and show up at the meeting itself on May 3 to be sure those who oppose even the whacked-down budget can’t pass a resolution to lower the budget.
