There is still work to be done

Arlington entered FY 2012 with stronger schools and town services because of the hard work of countless volunteers. The voters placed their trust in the town and in our message that the town would use the taxpayers’ money wisely.

Although the fight to win the override is done, citizens have a responsibility to stay informed, to make sure the town and schools spend wisely and to influence changes at the state level that will improve Arlington’s long term revenue issues.

Kathy Bodie and Brian Sullivan have written a letter (PDF) expressing their gratitude for the campaign and encouraging volunteers to stay involved.  Citizens who are educated and work together are a powerful force!
