Vermont’s Town Meeting Day is quickly approaching. It’s next Tuesday. The day that personifies democracy in action coincides with the national Super Tuesday primaries this year. Vermonters are expected to have a heightened interest this year as some schools look at merging and a native son appears on the presidential primary ballot.
It is Town Meeting Day in Vermont, a time when school and community budgets are decided and community leaders are chosen in a centuries-old tradition of discussion and debate at town halls across the state.
