Attention Edgecomb residents!
You have an opportunity to participate in democracy!
You have an opportunity to write your own tax bill!
Your town meeting will take place at the town hall at 10 a.m. Saturday.
Go ask questions! Go exercise your citizenship! Go speak your mind!
We are incredibly fortunate to live in democracies – that’s right, democracies.
While our country is a republic – we elect representatives to govern us but play no direct role in federal decision-making – each town in Lincoln County is a democracy. The town meeting makes up the legislative body – the equivalent of Congress.
Don’t whine about the “town fathers” and what they did or didn’t do – they couldn’t do anything without your say-so at town meeting.
Read the warrant articles – a lot of them start with the words, “To see if the voters will authorize the selectmen …” or some variation thereof.
As for what you’re going to vote on, you’ll find more on page 7.
