GUILFORD—Broad Brook Grange will hold its annual Pre-Town Meeting on Thursday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m., at the Broad Brook Community Center on Guilford Center Road.
This is the only opportunity for voters to hear details of the articles that will be presented at Town Meeting and to meet and discuss issues with the Selectboard in advance of Town Meeting. Refreshments will conclude the evening.
In addition, candidates for town offices are urged to attend to introduce themselves to the voters. State law prevents any “campaigning” by candidates at Town Meeting when an Australian ballot is used, as in this instance. So this is the only time before the vote for the public to meet and hear the candidates all at once.
Those interested in declaring as write-in candidates should take this sole opportunity to appear before a group of voters.
With the consolidation of the former Guilford Town School District into the new unified Windham Southeast School District, there is no longer an annual School Meeting in the separate towns on Town Meeting Day.
To provide a school-community connection for townspeople, the newly-formed Guilford Central School Leadership Advisory Council will make a presentation at Pre-Town Meeting.
Town Meeting itself, which will also include a presentation by the Council, will be held, as usual, on the first Tuesday of March, which this year is March 3, commencing at 10 a.m. in the gym of the Central School.
