League Positions on Town Meeting Warrant Articles

The League of Women Voters of Sudbury urges a YES vote on Town Meeting warrant article 44, to make Sudbury a welcoming town. The League supports this article and the policies of the Sudbury police in the treatment of undocumented immigrants. This article represents a policy of fairness toward all and will increase safety in Sudbury by encouraging undocumented immigrants to not fear reporting crimes or domestic violence and to feel secure in cooperating with the police. It does not change the way police deal with undocumented immigrants charged with criminal acts. Find more information at http://www.sudburywelcomingtown.org/.

The League supports 15 additional articles on the 2018 Town Meeting warrant: article 12 on Eversource litigation, 13 on Sudbury Station litigation, 15 on senior tax exemption, 25 on SPS playgrounds, 28 on Cutting Field, and 31 on Broadacres Farm purchase.

We also support these Community Preservation Fund articles: 34 on playground modernization, 35 and 36 on invasive plant removal, 37 on Broadacres Farm, 38 and 39 on housing issues, and 41 and 42 on CPC financial issues. We oppose article 40 reverting funds for CSX track acquisition. We also support article 45 calling for campaign finance and money in politics reforms.

The League does not have positions that cover most of the other articles before Town Meeting or has chosen not to take stands on those articles, and therefore does not officially support nor oppose any other articles.

The Sudbury League encourages voters to attend Town Meeting starting Monday, May 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School auditorium.
