Good News at the Local Level

Justin Katz

Well, I was able to cheer something: Some good results for Tiverton Citizens for Change, so far, and if they hold: Four of our endorsees made it on the seven-person council. The school committee results couldn't have been better: our candidate (meaning an original member of our group) led the vote percentage for school committee). The town will no longer be able to use town resources to influence votes, and both the council and school committee will have to publish all negotiated contracts before at least three days before actually approving them.
