Get To Know The Endorsed Town Moderator Candidate
The town meeting is a form of direct democratic rule, used since the 17th century, in which the members of the community come together to legislate the budget for the local government. Charlestown keeps this bit of New England history alive in the position of Town Moderator. The Town Moderator acts as presiding officer at all regular and special Budget Public Hearings.
Leo has the calm temperament and integrity needed to be an excellent Moderator. He is fair, clear, organized, informed, and inclusive. The Budget Public Hearing needs a Moderator who will facilitate an orderly meeting, not dominate it – the ability to chair complex meetings, the skills to assure the debate is open, and a broad knowledge of the major underlying issues.
