If Town Meeting disappears, democracy will follow

To  the Editor:
I see from the Wilmington Town Meeting warning that right at the end of the warnings are two articles related to going to Australian ballot and doing away with our Town Meeting.
It is important that Wilmington voters know that this means that annual Town Meetings would cease to exist. Our form of town government would change drastically. Voters would go in on a given day, with no discussion, and just vote the articles. No questions, no debate, no direct involvement.
