Special Town Meeting on November 4 may not have a ‘marquee’ article that guarantees a sell-out crowd, but it has something else, something more important: the fundamental flavor of democracy. One resident, one vote, making decisions for the Town where we live.
Students from Lane School have created a pair of videos to help explain some of the issues that will be voted at the meeting and to encourage voter participation. Both Town Manager Sarah Stanton and Town Moderator Cathy Cordes thanked the students for helping to get the word out about Special Town Meeting on November 4.

The four students and a JGMS student-mentor participate in the BRIC2 program, a collaboration between the Rotary Club of Bedford and Bedford TV. In addition to their on-camera participation, the five students served as technical support engineers, and video editors to bring the PSAs to life.
BRIC2, , the Bedford Rotary Ideas Community Challenge, is in its fourth year as a service activity for elementary and middle school students from Bedford, Hanscom AFB, and Boston. Through over 80 projects, more than 100 students have earned well over 4,000 Community Service hours by mentoring others and supporting Bedford TV as volunteers.
