This DVD describes the experiences of voters in open town meetings. It helps to familiarize those who have not previously attended town meeting with the key elements of this form of local government, and it serves as a refresher for those who have.
This DVD includes some of the same content as Town Meeting and You, since, in many respects, open and representative town meetings operate in similar fashion. The DVD describes, in addition, the role of town meeting members who are elected by the voters in each precinct to represent them and vote on their behalf on all matters decided by town meeting. Each DVD is narrated by NECN’s R.D. Sahl and includes comments from a number of voters on why they participate and why others should participate in their town meetings.
