Not until he hand in the proper paperwork
For the second time this week our local hometown newspaper has a front page above-the-fold story on something someone might do: bring an article to Town Meeting.
And since it only requires 10 signatures to get ANYTHING on the warrant, not a very high bar to hurdle. So yes, if someone tells you they are going to place an article on the spring warrant it's pretty easy to believe.
(At least the fall Town Meeting requires 100 signatures to grace the warrant.)
But what if they get hit by a PVTA bus or errant drone while they are out performing the arduous task of collecting those ten signatures?
Citizens have until February 29 to get the petition articles to Town Hall with the required signatures of registered voters. So far seven individuals have taken out the proper paperwork from the Town Clerk, so it's a safe bet we will be getting a few returned with do-gooder intentions.
But I'm not going to speculate. Especially on my front page.
