A Final (And Future) Request

"The People" wish to weigh in ...

Memo:  Amherst Select Board
Re:  Citizen Petition to fly the commemorative flags every 9/11

The Town Clerk informs me all the signatures required for requesting that you place the 9/11 commemorative flags advisory question before the voters on March 25, 2014 were certified.

I would ask that you take up official discussion of this at your next scheduled meeting Monday, September 16, while the awful anniversary is still fresh in our minds. 

As you know this petition now has to be acted on by you at least 90 days prior to March 25.  

I would also point out that you have until close of business tomorrow to call a Select Board meeting for Monday, September 9 ... in time for allowing the flags to fly this coming 9/11.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this important matter.

Now if your petition was to fly the black AQ flag, they'd be all for that....

Who are the "they" to whom you refer?

I suspect Dr. Ed is referring to the America-hating liberal assholes who dominate Amherst politics. Who did you think he meant?
