Note:  School Deliberative is at the bottom.
The RCL video taped this meeting.  Here are the time stamps and the details from the RCL notes of the meeting.  Estimating around 100 people attended.  Most left before the end as it went to 5pm.  A very small number of people are dictating what is on the ballot.  The below 50 years old demographic is barely represented at this meeting.   If you weren’t there, why not?  What would it take for you to participate?  If you were there, what worked well, what didn’t?
The Town minutes cannot be indexed, but we will add this link when they are available.
