Part 3 of the debate about whether or not town government should be changed in North Attleboro, MA, and replaced with a city form of government. Currently, North Attleboro has a form of town government that consists of a 5-member Board of Selectmen (Executive branch), a Town Administrator, and a 135-seat Representative Town Meeting (Legislative branch), or RTM.
This past year, a small minority of activists in North Attleboro have once again been obsessively pushing a destructive political agenda known as the Special Act Charter. This Special Act Charter calls for taking away from the people the right to govern themselves as citizen legislators in a Representative Town Meeting and a Board of Selectmen. It specifically gives this power to only ten paid, professional politicians (a mayor and nine town council members) in a city form of government.
This is the same destructive charter that was rejected by the RTM in 2009.
