New Town Meeting Member Orientation with Moderator, Michael Fee, 6:45 p.m.

The League of Women Voters Needham annually hosts Warrant Meetings. This is a wonderful opportunity for Town Meeting Members, and anyone else, to learn about the issues that will be voted on at Town Meeting the following week.

We will divide into small groups, by precinct. Town department representatives will informally discuss the Warrant articles relevant to their expertise. Town Meeting Members will have the opportunity to ask questions and get those questions answered within those small precinct groupings.

Plan now to attend to hear Senator Rosenberg and to advocate for the League's legislative priorities as the new session begins. As information is made available, details will be found at the LWVMA website.
