Amherst Democrats hosted an Overview of Amherst Town Government on Wednesday, March 15th at SHS. Town Administrator Jim O’Mara let us know there are close to 20 boards, committees and commissions involved in running the town, not counting the school districts. Want to be more involved with our community? Opportunities always exist, some requiring election or appointment, others just a phone call or email stating your willingness to help. Terri Behm and Lisa Eastland shared the many ways in which they have volunteered and encouraged others to do the same. Where do your interests lie: finances, the environment, education, holiday celebrations? There are opportunities in all categories. Amherst does not work without volunteers! Go to amherstnh.gov and check out the News tab for current openings. You’ll have fun, learn and make many new friends.
There are currently at least 21 bills being considered by Congress that are intended to weaken federal environmental regulations. Among them are three that weaken the Endangered Species Act, three that attempt to deny the EPA the authority to regulate activities related to global warming, three that reduce the ability to regulate the use and discharge of pesticides, and one that would eliminate the EPA altogether.
Thanks for all who called there local Rep. to lobby for this important win!
