With all the issues before the town of Longmeadow I feel it is important to watch the televised meetings of both the Select Board and the School Committee.
In talking with people before our last town election I was astonished at the number of people who told me they never have watched a meeting and or do not have cable television so.
It is not a option. I thought, “How in the world can they have an educated opinion on how the town operates unless they view these meetings?”
I urge people to find a way to watch both meetings. Both are replayed a number of times during the week. Just a word regarding the quality of sound. It seems that the sound is better on the replays – no one seems to know why. The schedule is posted on channel 12.
There is a lot going on. There is the possibility of a casino near Longmeadow as well as plans for a large housing complex near the Longmeadow line. Be informed of the issues the town might face.
