Civics Sunday - A Series

by The Publishers
February 10, 2019

As newcomers to Holliston, your Holliston Reporter publishers enjoy learning about our community and all it has to offer.   An added bonus is covering Holliston’s many events, people, and day-to-day matters that make the community hum. 

One feature captivating our attention is the structure, function, and human resources of our town government.  Although not unique to Holliston, this town government is new to us.  The present is a good time to examine the what, how, and why of Holliston’s governing bodies to inform our decisions for the next local election in May, as well as to become better prepared for the town meeting on May 6, 2019.

Why not come along with us on our civics journey?

Through our weekly series “Civics Sunday,” we’ll present an overview of a town office, board or committee to you, distilling the information we collect into a painless civics lesson for all.  Join us in our new venture!
