LWV of Amherst, Amherst Media and former MA State Senate President Stan Rosenberg will team up for Byline with Stan Rosenberg, an issue-oriented, topical government news program.

The League of Women Voters will form a new group to study the new Charter form of government and to consider its role. Possible topics of study will include how the new government will work and how citizens can become involved. One outcome might be a revival of the LWVA observer corps.

After reviewing the history of its positions, members decided that the best course of action would be to present the concepts, principles and practices that the League believes make for effective local government, and to use these principles to compare the charter proposal with the existing structure defined by the 2001 Amherst Town Government Act.

Position adopted by LWVA in 2003.

The Charter Commission is working towards a referendum date of March 27, 2018, the date of the 2018 Amherst Town Elections.
