Did anyone notice, or, rather not notice, the local media coverage of the Feb. 12 BUHS District #6 Annual Meeting? By the way this is a meeting of all the voters in the 5 towns making up the district, something like 16,000 voters or so, typically attended by 1% of them or fewer.
WTSA mentioned it next day, but they have an inside track: The Moderator of the meeting is Tim Johnson of WTSA, using the personna of his real name as a Vernon resident. I don't know if The Commons covered it? Their deadline wouldn't have worked for the issue that came out on Weds. 13th, & I haven't yet seen this week's issue. Even iBrattleboro missed it.
Most glaringly, however, the Reformer, which a week earlier ran a screaming front page banner headline about the Brattleboro Finance Commttee recommending Brattleboro voters attend en masse and vote against the budget, has not as of today, ten days later, even mentioned that the meeting took place.
Remarkably, this non-covered meeting votes on a budget of some 27 million bucks.
In case you're wondering whether it took place at all, yup, it did; I was there, with about 100 other citizens. Democracy in action!
