A new website www.newtondemocracy.org is spreading the message that the Charter Review Commission’s latest proposal is wrong for Newton. It urges voters to say NO in November while offering opportunities for like-minded voters to join them in their efforts to keep our directly elected Ward Councilor representation intact.
Whether you agree with their premise or not, go to their website and read their arguments. You will learn about our City government structure now and how the proposed changes can affect you and your relationship with the local people who represent you! If you are convinced by their arguments, you can join them with your time and/or money! Be sure to notice the varied political positions of the early endorsers!
