Wilton Town Meeting
Tuesday, May 2 - 7:00 pm
As we approach this exercise in grass roots democracy, the Wilton League of Women Voters re-commits to the principle of non-partisanship, and re-emphasizes our confidence that all members of our community can engage in discussion with a spirit of respect and civility.
We applaud our Board of Selectmen for adopting Wilton's Town Civility Proclamation:
and reinforce its principles.
