Town Meeting 2017: Lee Deserves to Preserve SB2

By CNHT | January 24, 2017

There is a effort underway to rescind SB2 in Lee.

“In 2012, Lee residents overwhelmingly rejected an effort to overturn SB2: 371 voting Yes to rescind to 602 voting No. Those who are once again trying to send the town of Lee back into the dark ages when only a tiny minority of residents decided all of the town business should respect the wishes of Lee voters who clearly prefer the SB2 balloting system.”

“Like other towns, Lee has seen a dramatic increase in voter participation since switching to SB2. In March 2015, more than 1,100 residents voted on election day on town issues under SB2. In contrast in 2009, one of the last town meeting years, only about 180 people attended town meeting.”
