THE BOSTON GLOBE:
“Sudbury residents voted Monday to expand the number of members on the Board of Selectmen from three to five, a move that proponents say will help increase representation and transparency in town government.
Now that residents have approved the change, a vote to fill the two additional seats on the board must be held no later than the next annual town election, which is March 2014. A special election could be called in the meantime.
“More representation is going to open things up for Sudbury in a way that serves everybody’s interests,’’ said resident Michael Troiano, who spearheaded the expansion effort.
According to unofficial results from the town clerk’s office, the vote in Monday’s election was 1,936 in favor of expanding the board to 625 against.”
