Today I re-submitted my proposed charter amendments. The goal is to allow residents to choose health board members through the election process. The first petition, submitted pursuant to the town charter, was rejected by the town attorney. I’ve re-submitted the petition, this time citing state law which (1) does not allow the town’s attorney to reject the proposal and (2) requires the council to order a public hearing on the matter within the next 3 months.
