Yes, we have had our problems in Lenox recently, but at Thursday night’s Town Meeting voters showed good sense in wisely and resoundingly defeating several petition articles.

Voters clearly understand that the right of any 10 people to place an article on the town warrant is precious and important -- dare I say, sacred -- to be used with great restraint and careful research. These votes should serve to discourage unnecessary citizen petitions on an already overcrowded warrant for matters that could best be addressed in some other way. Thank you, Lenox.
