Group forms to advocate for Shrewsbury

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – As we enter into the budget season here in Shrewsbury I’m happy to report that a group of concerned Shrewsbury citizens has come together to form the non-partisan Shrewsbury Advocacy Group, dedicated to informing the public about issues facing the town, preserving public education and public services.

After forming a steering committee, they met with everyone from past override events, in addition to Superintendent Joe Sawyer, Town Manager Dan Morgado and Selectman Moe DePaolo and decided that rather than becoming an override committee, they would instead become a long-term community advocacy group.

You can check out their mission statement and website at www.shrewsburyadvocates.org.

Ultimately, they merely want to inform people so that they can make decisions about how funds are directed through letter writing, attendance at public hearings and taking on elected positions such as town meeting member.

They will be holding their first meeting on January 16th from 7-9 at the Shrewsbury Public Library, and currently have Dan Morgado and Joe Sawyer on the agenda.

    Sure hope this will be on SPAC, or whatever they call the town TV “SELCO” station these days. Better version of the old SRT vs. CBS coming to a local channel near you, or on rebroadcast on demand.

    I am wondering if the group will meet in different sites such as the Town Hall or at the senior center. What if a person wants to come and is a wheelchair user and can’t take the elevator to the second floor on the library? What do they do? At the senior center, which is handicap accessible, persons with mobility impairments may want to come.
