Email the Town Council
Here is a sample email that you could use:
Dear Council Member _____________
I am asking you to vote no to changing the Board of Education elections back to April. The original purpose of moving the election to November was cost savings and to increase participation. This change in date would require additional BOE expenses for an election that was not budgeted for this school year. The average votes cast for the BOE elections in November are almost double what the average was for the April elections. It appears that the original goals for moving the election, cost-saving for the taxpayer and more taxpayer participation, have been met. A vote to move the election back to April would send the message that the town council wants to reduce the number of people who chose the BOE and does not care what the expenses are for the taxpayer.
Please vote no to moving the BOE election.
