Run for Town Meeting!
As the New Year begins, AFR is turning our focus to upcoming elections for both Town wide offices and to Town Meeting. We are very grateful to those who have contributed to Town Meeting over the last few years; and we are eager both to maintain our circle of supporters and to expand it. Are you interested in running for election in your precinct?
Please let us know by January 27 if you would like to run, have questions or need AFR’s help: firstname.lastname@example.org
There are currently open seats in many precincts so this is a great opportunity for new voices and faces to run for Town Meeting. Please consider running and also reaching out to 5 people you know to see whether they are interested in running. Often people have simply not thought of themselves in that role and just need to be encouraged to run. And of course, keep in mind that one of AFR’s priorities has always been to identify and support strong candidates from underserved and underrepresented groups, and their allies.
For new candidates, February 8, 5:00 PM is the last day for obtaining nomination papers and they must be returned with 10 signatures by 5:00 PM on February 10, 2023.
