Letter: Come to the next Bow meeting, voters
I want to thank all the Bow voters who turned out for the first town meeting. The attendance was phenomenal. I hope our message was heard loud and clear. Unfortunately Bow has a history of a small group who will blatantly disregard the overwhelming will of the voter and request reconsideration. For this reason it is critical that we all show up at the March 24 town meeting to ensure that our votes are not stolen. There will be a vote to restrict reconsideration.
I also want to apologize to the people who took the time to go to the meeting but had to leave even before the first vote because it was getting too late – not to mention the people who had to leave right after the first vote. I asked you to come to the meeting, and I didn’t fight hard enough to ensure that you were comfortable enough to stay for all of the votes.
To make sure that doesn’t happen again, I will make a motion that the moderator follows his own rules that are published in our town report, unless those rules are changed to move the meeting in a more efficient way. A person’s voice and right to vote is far more important than someone’s inability to put together a short, concise, informative presentation.
I hope you will second and support my motion and any other motion I might make to move the meeting along.
