Chariho Budget Approved

Thank you to all who voted Tuesday.

Voters approved the 2017-2018 Chariho budget during Tuesday’s referendum with 1,568 for and 1,165 against with a margin of 403 votes.

Charlestown voted for 577 to 73 against.
Hopkinton voted for 456 to against 468.
Richmond voted for 535 to against 624.

Charlestown was the only town with a majority in favor, but the majority here was so overwhelming that it carried the vote. The other towns were nearly equally divided on the issue.
