November vote – yes we can

Yes, we get to vote!

The Town will get to vote on the school project in this fall’s “debt override” (Proposition 2 1/2 override) vote. A majority is needed to approve the override, which would give the Town authority to borrow the amount needed to pay for the project. By law, the Town must authorize borrowing the full amount – $67 million.

After the Town vote, Town Meeting must vote to appropriate the funds for the project. A 2/3 majority is needed to approve the appropriation.

Some SASS members are heading up a “vote no” committee. We’ll create a spot on this website for that work.

The Town’s election website has more information, including polling places, deadlines, the SASS ballot question committee registration (also available on this website) etc.
