One of the advantages of living in a small community is that there are many opportunities for residents to have a direct impact on the operations of the town. Whether it is a group of citizens advocating for slower speed limits, someone taking the time to attend a Selectmen’s meeting to opine on an agenda item or petitioners crafting an article for a town meeting warrant, local government is easily assessable with just a modicum of effort. Time and again I see examples of a handful of people being able to mobilize and achieve an outcome that they care about. It is how we came to have curbside composting pick-up, the improved sidewalks around Memorial School and the establishment of a trust fund to pay for retiree health insurance benefits, to name just a few examples.
