This forum is scheduled for 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 29, at the Town Hall. The League of Women Voters of Hingham supports the principle that democratic government depends upon informed and active participation of its citizens. This requires that governmental bodies protect the citizen's right to know by giving adequate notice of proposed actions and making public records accessible. In 2011, Hingham voters voted to have the Annual Town Meeting Warrant made available to the public 10 days after the January 20 deadline for article submission, as stated in the Town's by-laws. Citizens can access a preliminary 2012 warrant by visiting http://www.hingham-ma.gov/selectmen/documents/Preliminary_Warrant_Articles.pdf. The forum will give citizens the opportunity to review Articles and ask questions. They can then follow up by attending Advisory Committee meetings at which the Advisory Committee will discuss its recommendations for the particular articles in which the citizens are interested.
