To update the name of Winchester's "Board of Selectmen" to "Select Board"

This petition had 343 supporters

Winchester's governing body is called the Board of Selectmen, a term that was coined in an age when women couldn't even vote, let alone run for public office. The time has come to update this language. 57 Massachusetts towns that have this governing body have updated the name to Select Board, and we want to join them in making this simple change. We ask our Board of Selectmen to change the name to Select Board.
