Town of Islip - Hold open Board Meetings when taxpayers can attend and participate.
This petition had 47 supporters
WE, the residents of Islip Township, believe that government must be accessible and accountable to everyone it represents – not just to political parties and donors. WE have to work for a living to maintain our homes and pay our taxes and cannot attend meetings at 2:00 on Tuesdays; that should not disqualify us from participating in the process. We should not be forced to choose between our livelihoods and our essential responsibility to participate in civic affairs. Accordingly, WE hereby petition the Islip Town Board to schedule its Board meetings no earlier than 6:30 p.m. so that the majority of the Town’s taxpayers and voters can attend, observe, speak and make their appeals to their representatives. Your decision will inform our electoral choices.
