"First Tuesday" Is Here

The first Tuesday in March is Town Meeting Day and VPR has many ways for you to get your town's news on the air and online. Plus you can hear all about towns and cities around the state.

Today: Vermont Edition at Noon
We'll talk with Kermit Richardson of Orange, who's stepping down after 50 years as town meeting moderator there; with Rockingham moderator Mike Harty about the effects of tough economic on voter generosity; and with Alison Forrest of Huntington about the town meeting lunch. We'd also like to hear about your Town Meeting traditions.

You can email us at Vermontedition@vpr.net or post your comments here.

Tonight: Special Coverage on VPR from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Bob Kinzel hosts with guest Steve Jeffery of the Vermont League of Cities and Towns. We travel around the state to hear results from the day during this special 90 minute program. Email results or comments to news@vpr.net or call the show 1-800-639-2211.

Anytime: Post Your Comments or Your Town’s Results.
