Why have the newly elected Mayor and Council members not been seated?
Below is the text shown on the single piece of paper in the
photo. This memo was found posted on the Post Office bulletin board
late today. It is next to the posted Agenda for the June 4 Special
Meeting just scheduled.
“To: Terry Frausto, Town Clerk
Re: Special Meeting
Please set a special meeting to canvass the vote of the May 15 election for June 4, 2012 at 9:00 A.M.”
(Signatures, possibly those of Joe Winslow, Mike Jewitt, Carol Kelley)
The meeting could have been scheduled for today or tomorrow. The newly elected officers cannot be sworn in until the canvass takes place. The people are being made to wait. The names under the request above may clear up the question of whose idea it was to delay the canvass (certification) of the election results.
