VOTE – Town Financial Referendum – Monday
What: Town Financial Referendum
When: Monday, June 6, 8:00 am to 8:00 pm
Where: Charlestown Town Hall
Why: Vote on combined school and municipal budget and citizen petition to purchase the General Stanton Inn
Traditionally very few people vote in the annual Town Financial Referendum. In 2014, 199 voters cast ballots in the all-day financial referendum. This April, only 218 voters turned out for the Chariho District School Budget Referendum that makes up over half of Charlestown’s annual budget.
The General Stanton Inn question will bring out more voters, but the total number will still be a fraction of the turnout in a November general election. Your one vote can make a big difference.
However you feel about the General Stanton Inn proposal, we urge you to go to Town Hall on Monday and VOTE.
