A special town meeting is being held tonight, August 1, 2011 at 6:00pm at the Killington Elementary School. The meeting has been called to discuss, once again, the advantages and disadvantages of:
- Electing town officials by Australian Ballot
- Deciding on town budget items by Australian Ballot
- Deciding on public questions by Australian Ballot
You might recall that the towns' people voted and approved using the Australian Ballot during the last Special Town Meeting held in May. It seems, however, those people who did not agree with the majority vote the last time have petitioned the town to reconsider the vote. Is this an example of, "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again?" Hopefully, we can put this issue to bed once and for all tonight.
If you are a registered voter in the town of Killington, please show up one more time at 6pm this evening and cast your vote. If you hadn't figured it out already, I am a strong proponent of enabling everyone who has the right to vote, the opportunity to vote.
