No Egg Timers!

Do you remember when prior Town Board would use an egg timer? We do!

We promised a new approach to communication: Communication is also listening. We promised a willingness to listen to the townspeople, the boards, and common sense. The flow of information flow between citizens and government should not be one directional, flowing from Government to residents.
