To The Daily Sun,
Here comes the month of March, when Bristol has its annual town meeting. This year we are being asked to vote on a new warrant article changing this town into an SB-2, which eliminates our yearly meeting and changes the nature of the democratic process which is apt to cause less input on budget issues by voters.
I believe one reason for this warrant article is because some people feel we don't have enough taxpayers and residents in attendance at this meeting. As I recall we had approximately 150 voters in previous years who have concerns about how our tax money is being spent.
I have also read that some towns who are currently SB-2 are considering reverting back to town meetings so their voices can be heard. So think twice about your vote and the impact an SB-2 could have.
Also when contemplating candidates for the Selectboard, consider Rick Alpers and Don Milbrand who will always keep the taxpayers in mind when making final decisions.
