Editorial: The seed for Town Meeting

ANGELO LYNN

With more board turnover than we’ve seen in years, and with town and school budgets working to overcome the negative effects of the pandemic, housing shortages and a tight labor market, Addison County residents have a full slate of issues to consider at this year’s Town Meeting, set for March 6-7.

That leaves a couple of weeks to bone up on school and town budgets, review the profiles and positions of candidates and consider some of the special questions each town will present to residents. This issue of the Addison Independent, like the two week’s prior, features several stories on area races, budget previews and other special issues related to Town Meeting. Next week, we’ll publish our town-by-town TM previews.

We hope you’ll spend the extra time it takes to become informed about the issues that affect your town. Well-informed voters, after all, are the seeds for good government.
