Too many choices in Brattleboro charter amendments

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Town Charter amendments that were clumped as one item on the ballot were too varied.

I agreed with some changes and disagreed with others. For instance, time off for voting does not seem necessary because voters may receive and submit their ballots before voting day, in person or by mail. But changing the timing of voting to coincide with general elections makes sense to me.

In the end, I had to vote no. I needed an opportunity to vote on each amendment separately, and I hope that will be possible in the future.
