Mock Town Hall Meeting?
« on: February 13, 2005, 11:33:58 am »

What exactly is the "Mock Town Hall Meeting in Unity, NH" that is listed on the schedule?  I want to register my attendance to PorcFest, but I don't know what this is, so I don't know if I should mark myself down for this event or not...

Thanks,
Joe

Mary Gere, currently elected Unity town selectman (errr selectwoman???) has made arrangements to have a mock town hall meeting in the real town hall in Unity (maybe an hour and a half from Roger's??).  Not only will you learn what goes on in a town hall meeting (like how the town residents actually vote on the budget *themselves*), but you'll see it in action in a real town hall with real elected officials!  It promises to be a great learning experience for all and particularly insightful for out of state visitors who may be unfamiliar with NH town government. 

Hope that helps ya a bit.  If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask.. ;)

Thanks, that does seem like it would be good for folks that aren't familiar with town meetings.

I'm pretty well aware of how town meetings work, from my own town, so I guess I won't sign up for that particular activity.  But for someone who has never participated in "hands-on government," it could be a real eye-opener...
