Capital Debt Exclusion fails by 20 votes in Hamilton

The Capital Debt Exclusion garnered a healthy majority of the votes, but not quite the 2/3 needed to get it onto the ballot. A sincere thank you to all the Hamilton voters who braved the overheated room, and heated dialogue, last night in the High School Auditorium.

We have just two things left to ask of you this year.

  1. Return tonight and vote on whether or not you support moving Town Meeting permanently to a Saturday. As we saw last night, both parents need to be able to make every town meeting to have their voices heard. Will Saturdays work for your household?

    This petition will be one of the first – if not the very first — item on the agenda. Meeting starts promptly at 7:30.

    Then please stay for other important business that affects our town and our schools:

    • Article 3-1 Overlay District for Landfill
    • Article 4-7 Increase size of our Board of Selectmen from 3 to 5
    • Article 5-1 Create a new Town Manager position
    • Article 5-2 Property Tax Exemption petition
  2. Vote on Thursday, May 14, for selectman. Candidates are Jen Scuteri, John Celata, and Paul Ricker. This is a no-school day, so plan accordingly. Polls at the Winthrop School are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Thanks for staying informed.
