You may be aware that Harpswell will vote on whether to have a study group look into improving town government.  Those of us who favor such a move have begun the process of informing the voters about charters and charter commissions.  
Last Friday on Harpswell TV (Channel 14) there was a panel discussion & call-in program.  The discussion involved two towns with different experiences on charters.  Panelists were:

  • Current Selectman Dan Collomy of Buxton  - town developed a charter and adopted it

  • Current Charter Comm. Chair Mike Huston of Lisbon - town developing a charter now

  • Moderated by Jim Henderson, State Archivist, Harpswell resident.

Former Selectman Karl Tarbox of Wiscasset was slated to appear but could not attend due to a death in his family. Wiscasset is a town that developed a charter and rejected it

Each guest describes their experiences developing a charter.  What was good?  What was bad?  What advice for Harpswell?
