The Brattleboro Selectboard began discussing a repeal of a 2011 Town Charter change to stop counting local write-in votes unless the write-in candidate had declared an intention to serve.
The board heard a semi-annual update from the Downtown Brattleboro Alliance, approved of paving, police cars, body cameras for police officiers, and disc golf improvements. Snow sports at Living Memorial Park will continue, we have a new road in town, and new members were appointed to committees.

That all power being originally inherent in and co[n]sequently derived from the people, therefore, all officers of government, whether legislative or executive, are their trustees and servants; and at all times, in a legal way, accountable to them. ~ Constitution of the State of Vermont ~ Ch I, Art 6
KIRSTEN RITCHIE, 44, is no stranger to surgery — nearly 20 years ago, doctors removed four tumors from her brain. She remembers the operation and its aftermath as “horrific.”So the news that she needed brain surgery again was hardly welcome. Determined to make her second operation a better — or at least less traumatic — experience, Ms. Ritchie, an insurance marketing representative in Cleveland, turned to an unusual treatment.
Brattleboro Area Hospice’s fall Hospice Care Volunteer Training will be held at Grace Cottage Hospital in Townshend beginning on September 5th and running through November 14th. Classes meet once a week on Wednesdays from 2:30 – 5:30 PM and class size is limited to 12.
Hospice Volunteers help and support neighbors and their families who are living with life-threatening illnesses throughout Windham County. Help may range from errands and gardening to emotional and physical support.
Sunday, August 12th the VFW Post #1034 Auxillary will be hosting their annual bingo for cancer fundraiser. Doors open at 11 A.M., there are no outside food or drinks allowed, but food and drinks will be available for purchase (lunch served at 12. )
Not based on numerology, but based on the new science of nomenology, which I just invented for this posting. And well, maybe he’ll just make a more-than-could-have-been-expected good showing, but let’s think outside the envelope or whatever and give things a shake-up.
OK, so I noticed that this candidate, who is challenging incumbent Windham County Senators in the August 14 Democratic Primary, is named Wayne Vernon Estey. Lot of Waynes out there, but I figure with his middle name being that of one of the towns in the district, that gives him an edge in Vernon.

I predict, based on Gematria, that Brenda Siegel will win the August 14th Democratic primary for Governor.
Siegel=39 in English Reduction (s exception). Governor=39 in Reverse Reduction. Siegel’s slogan is “A Vermont for all of us”=233 in English Ordinal. 233 is the 51st prime number. Governor=51 in English Reduction.
Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present folk/roots-rock band Session Americana at Next Stage on Friday, July 20 at 7:30 pm. Featuring Boston-based, multi-instrumentalists and singers Ry Cavanaugh, Billy Beard, Dinty Child, Jim Fitting and Jefferson Hamer, plus a rotating collective of guest musicians, the band’s raucous live shows are built around the community concept of traditional Irish seisiúns.
Blending vintage American roots music styles – from country to jazz to rock – Session Americana is a rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This band/collective of talented musicians craft a musical experience unlike any other.

At the next meeting of the Brattleboro Selectboard, the police will ask for approval of a contract for body worn cameras. Axon, of Scottsdale, AZ is the proposed vendor.
The board will buy some police cruisers, hear a semi-annual report from the designated downtown organization, approve of grants for disc golf improvements and paving, review goals, and name a road. They will also begin a discussion election write-in procedures, and more.
As always, you can bring up other items not on the agenda during public participation.
