Town Meeting Coordinating Committee discussed upcoming town election & Town Meeting this afternoon
Since the race for Charter Commission has a large field of 20 candidates vying for only 9 seats and since this process is not exactly routine, the League of Women Voters will host a candidates night in the Middle School auditorium on March 14 at 7:00 pm.
This public forum on the Charter Commission is in addition to their usual candidates night for town wide offices (Select Board, School Committee, and Library Trustees) which will be held March 22 in the Town Room at Town Hall.
In addition the TMCC will sponsor a bus tour on Sunday April 24 for all Town Meeting members to peruse sites around town related to Town Meeting articles. The 40 seat bus is provided by UMass at a cost of $200 but UMass Community Relations office is picking up half the cost.
Amherst school buses had been used in the past but they are not handicapped accessible and the UMass bus has room for two wheelchairs.
