Pollard Middle School Warrant Meetings. 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.

Framingham State University LWVMA Council:. Civility and Politics: Challenge to Good Government

In this era of blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and talk radio, the lack of civil discourse is making its way into town and city politics. You may have seen the impact in your own town. This incivility is affecting whether candidates are willing to run for public offices and to serve on public boards and committees. We will consider this issue and explore roles for LWV in improving the civic conversation, particularly at the local level.

Visit LWVMA website for more information.
