It drives me crazy whenever I see my town abbreviated as “No. Yarmouth.” But now I guess there’s a reason for it.
The upcoming referendum vote in my town has an opposition group that likes the “No” in North Yarmouth.
They want to vote no to converting our beloved school into a town community center. No to moving our embarrassingly cramped town office and meeting room into better, more efficient quarters. No to thinking creatively about slowing school taxes by creating a town center TIF district. Most towns around us are doing this, but no, not here, I guess.
I vote yes. Yes to a converted school with a community gym and Wescustogo. Yes to young families who are already actively volunteering, recreating, and making a difference here. Yes to a thriving town center that benefits everyone in town.
Yes on North Yarmouth Question 1. As for Question 2: Vote no, of course.
