All politics is local
Yeah, that’s our antiquated almost-extinct Amherst Town Meeting, with over half the members already having one foot in the grave. The illustrious Select Board moved back the start date from November 5 to November 10 because they figured everybody would be soooooo tired from campaigning on November 4 and watching the election results that they would need a reprieve.
Of course if McCain wins, about half of Town Meeting will succumb to heart attacks thus making it hard to get a quorum.
