If you can't watch live, watch or skim through the recording. It's your money, your elected officials are planning for you.

The only other option you have for town budgeting is to get the town to vote-in, at town meeting, a 3 to 12 member Official Budget Committee, that would come up with the budget, with Walter's help and guidance.

The statute (RSA 32:15)says the Official Budget Committee can be elected or appointed. If appointed, the appointment would be by the Town moderator, not the BoS. They would not necessarily be BoS partisans.

Live streaming, a worthy town benefit, can be a focus of blog discussion, instead of passing wind with media quotes.

Thanks again to blogger, wearing his other hat on the BoS, for championing this benefit.

"13:15- Recreation"

For you civilians, that's the same as 1:15 PM

For our MoBo political extremists, in all of the political parties ... try not to argue about this link ... just ponder!

Sorry, Joe, but I am old fashioned (maybe because I'm old)and like to read things not watch videos. If reading, I can skim over things I don't deem important at my pace and not have to watch someone present at their pace.

I hear ya!

You're not old, just going through a phase! I'm 68+ and just beginning. Jump on the wagon, it can fun. You can still skim, with practice, just move the pointer at the bottom to the right a bit. You might even zero-in on certain characters (saying that affectionately), when they speak ... or grumble.

We can't get the hours-long meetings in print. Heck, we'd miss the the facial expressions of astonishment, when some pearl of wisdom is pronounced.

At least there's no review of written drafts, that are not legal requirements.

I watch on my notebook in my lounge chair. The wife's lounge chair is beside mine. She can be watching "Nashville", "Chicago PD", or "Castle" while while I'm watching the stream or recording.

Not sure which is more make-believe!
