  • Worthwhile

    I’ve put my application in for Fence Viewer again.

    Last year we had a real, live fence to view. It was the first in 20+ years, according to the Town Clerk.

    • Nominated!

      I nominate iBrattleboro as Town Service Representative, tho I must admit I know neither who the Town Service Representative serves nor what they represent. My hope and expectation is that this is left up to the candidate selected by the Selectboard (herein lies proof of their title, eh?).

      I would lobby for the new Town Service Representative to serve in the role of promoting and facilitating joyful, uplifting and emotionally intelligent discourse between citizens of wildly divergent sensibilities, anger management skill levels and articulatenesses.

      Is that a word — articulatenesses? Clearly this is not a role for me.
