We don’t need necessarily to restore the town meeting, but we ought to consider doubling or tripling the size of the council, given that there has been an influx of new people in the town. Also, consideration ought to be given to ranked choice voting for public offices in the town. The current system of plurality voting does not necessarily result in the election of the broadest range of viewpoints.
