Last Friday I submitted our proposed ballot initiative to the East Longmeadow town clerk. The initiative seeks to make the health board members subject to the town’s election process. Currently, they are appointed by the town manager who is also unelected. The town’s attorney now has 21 days to review/revise my proposed initiative. After that, I’ll need another 50 signatures to present the initiative to the town council. I’ll keep you updated as things progress.
