The Yarmouth Town Elections are a few hours away, with interest in the 2 1/2% of over the $3O million Yarmouth Annual assessment. In addition to the Prop 2 1/2% Override of more than $570,000 the Town will vote for a new selectman and two School Committee Members!
As a longtime political observer and as a candidate, I would not be surprised if a few votes separate all of the positions and the turnout will affect the relationship between the results, issues, and margin of victory .
In the past the DY School Override has increased turnout above general Presidential/Gubernatorial races exceeding over 50% or at least exceeding the Town Elections without controversy,[ usually about 10% of voters.]
It will clearly be higher than town meeting of just over 1% turnout, especially with a beautiful day forecast, after a stormy weekend!
A nice day and a lot of conversation about having to change the business as usual, will affect the outcome for sure, for all of the ballot contest.
If the NO Voters or simply the folks who are discussing a different Regional Agreement or a Restructuring of Yarmouth Schools and the corresponding level of participation in the district, the insiders and outsiders will be separated in both races. The possibility of a Single Town of Yarmouth- District for Elementary/Grammer Schools, Middle or Middle High School or Complete De-Regionization.
Please turn out to vote. Your vote will count and that turnout will swing the Overrride and the Elections. You will send a message!
I hope the message is that we need "Bold New Leaders with Vision and Direction"! If you agree that Yarmouth will "WIN with GLYNN"!
You got to Go and then please consider JOE. Act like the life of the the Town of Yarmouth depends upon it! It does!
The next 60 Years of our town will depend upon your vote on Tuesday may 16th! Polls are open from7am-8pm!
[Joe Glynn is a candidate for Yarmouth Selectman]
Leadership with Vision and direction- Yarmouth will "WIN with GLYNN"!
