The mission of PCTC is to form a Charter Commission to explore the current form of town government, and what a future form of government might look like.
The immediate goal of PCTC is to get signatures on the petitions from at least 15 percent of the registered voters in Plymouth (approximately 7000) so that the ballot question can appear on the May 2021 town election. Once the ballot question has been certified by the Town Clerk, PCTC will work proactively to build support so that it is approved by the voters in May 2021.
PCTC is prohibited from supporting specific candidates for the Charter Commission.
PCTC has no official position on the future form of Plymouth town government. The job of the Charter Commission is to evaluate various options, and make a recommendation to the voters. Ultimately, the voters of Plymouth will make the final decision.
Initially, this will be a grass-roots effort by volunteers who are interested in supporting this effort. A similar effort in Framingham utilized a private contractor to get the necessary signatures. That is an option for PCTC if the grass-roots effort is not sufficient.
Yes, we need all the help that we can get to reach the goal of at least 7000 signatures on the petitions. Please fill out the Contact Us form here on the site to volunteer.
The PCTC is a ballot question committee formed under the provisions of
MGL, Chapter 55.
The officers are:
Wrestling Brewster, Chairman
Robert Nassau, Vice-chairman
Michael Hanlon, Treasurer
Alan Costello, Clerk.
