Don't strip RTM from Groton governance

Should Groton approve the proposed charter ammendments and change its town government?

As a former moderator of the RTM, I believe the RTM should be retained. The committees of the RTM do have updates on the budget from department heads who explain in detail their needs. This process runs through budget hearings each year. Unfortunately, the general public does not have their insight into town affairs.

The RTM might also again use the power of initiative for important decisions.
