Opinions are like you-know-whats: Everyone’s got ’em.
Westporters know exactly what to do about Baron’s South, the education budget, tree-cutting, downtown parking, Compo Beach, affordable housing, bike lanes, and a thousand different topics.
We are not afraid to share our thousands of different views with our elected officials.
When those officials disagree with us, we think it’s their fault. Even if we did not vote in the election that put them in office.
Knowledge is power.
Tomorrow (Monday, October 5) focuses on candidates for the Planning & Zoning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals and Board of Assessment Appeals.
On Wednesday, October 14, meet Board of Education and Board of Finance hopefuls.
Both sessions are set for Town Hall, at 7 p.m.
But wait! There’s more!
Both days, at 6:15 p.m., voters can meet Representative Town Meeting (RTM) candidates. They’re our unsung civic backbone, with power over everything from final budgets to plastic bags.
Around the world, people continue to die for the right to vote. Here in Westport, you just have to go around the corner.
