WSESD Candidates Welcome at Guilford Pre-Town Meeting

Guilford’s Pre-Town Meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 27, at 6:30 pm at Broad Brook Community Center. This is also the one opportunity for Guilford voters to meet and hear from candidates for local offices that will be voted on Town Meeting Day the following week. In addition to town offices, such as selectboard, the Australian ballot on Town Meeting Day will include elections for board members of the Windham Southeast School District. This year, in addition to filling one seat on the board with a representative from Guilford, a seat from Putney and two from Brattleboro will be elected by voters in the four towns. Therefore, those running for the Brattleboro and Putney seats will also appear on the Guilford ballot. Guilford voters present at Pre-Town Meeting will thus be pleased to have in attendance any candidates running for these positions, to have them make a statement, answer questions, and, after the meeting, meet and chat.

Guilford Pre-Town Meeting, co-sponsored by Broad Brook Grange and the Guilford Selectboard, is an officially-warned public information meeting presenting the articles which will be voted on at town meeting, ranging from budgets to special articles and elections of town officials. The evening will also include an informal update on WSESD and Guilford School happenings. Refreshments will be served.

Broad Brook Community Center is at 3940 Guilford Center Road, 4 miles west of the Guilford Country Store, and is fully ADA accessible.

Guilford Town Meeting will be held Tuesday, March 5, at 10 am at Guilford Central School. Elections for selectboard, auditor, lister, and WSESD rep will be conducted by Australian ballot; polls open at the school from 10m am to 7 pm. Balloting will also include the Vermont Presidential Primary Election. Absentee ballots may be obtained from the Guilford Town Office.
