Though the 2020 election is over, 2021 provides us with the chance to reelect Democratic majorities to the Town Council and Board of Education. As we continue to wrestle with safely teaching our students during a global pandemic, provide affordable housing opportunities, protect small businesses, and ensure we address racial inequities in our local government, it is vitally important that we elect candidates committed to our shared values.
