Corrected: Breaking Local News Related to FTM Moderator

Justin Katz

At the tail end of our Tiverton Citizens for Change meeting, I received word that Mike Burk won the position as financial town meeting moderator on a unanimous council vote a council vote of five to one, with Jay Lambert voting against and, with Council President Don Bollin suspiciously absent.

Well, I warned of the outcome should this come to pass.

Comments, although monitored, are not necessarily representative of the views Anchor Rising's contributors or approved by them. We reserve the right to delete or modify comments for any reason.

Well, it should make for more lively financial town meetings.

Not a very "moderate" choice, was it?

Mr. Katz:
Please be adivsed that the information you received last night regarding the vote for the moderator is incorrect. The vote was unanimous for Michael Burk.

Mr. Lambert only nominated Mr. Smith, but voted in the end for Mr. Burk.

Oh well. I guess my credibility is shot because somebody gave me the wrong info on one council member's vote (assuming that Jay didn't change his vote after the fact, as we've seen done before).

Makes a world of difference. (Well, for Jay it might.)
