Town Meeting season called to mind this commentary that originally aired two years ago on New Hampshire Public Radio. It is, perhaps, even more relevant today. On Wednesday, Town Meeting night in Warner, I will be up in the Town Hall balcony, second row on the right, aisle seat, directly behind Phil Stockwell. (We don’t technically have assigned seats at Town Meeting, but we gravitate to them like we gravitate to our places at the supper table.) And I will be texting updates to my college student who is now studying far afield…and whose return, when the time comes, will be celebrated.
