Town Meeting

Town Meetings – for SB2 towns like Gilford, we get to trek in the snow tomorrow (ahGAIN!)

by Skip March 12, 2018

Thankfully, being an SB2 town, we get to vote in private.  I remember town meetings when the warrant was both debated and voted upon in a single session and how long they ran until way early into the morning as one special interest group (“SIG”) or another slowed it down until “the opposition” finally went […]
