Westford Open for Deliberation

Posted on Sunday, November 11, 2007 by No comments yet

Westford, Vermont makes excellent use of Front Porch Forum, with about 25% of the households on board and lots of lively conversation. Currently, folks are debating using Town Meeting vs. an Australian ballot to decide the school budget every year. Beth weighed in today…

I would also love to see the Front Porch Forum continue to be a place where the information and debate about town issues gets talked about. It would be great to have reminders for upcoming regular town meetings, including agendas, posted here. I find this forum such a great resource and feel like it could be used to persuade people to become more involved in the decisions that shape our community. This was evident in the lively debate that happened here about the School Unification.
