Wellesley vote “No” group amps up its messaging

Emails have been flying and blue signs have been popping up all over lawns urging Wellesley residents to vote “Yes” on a $3.3M proposition 2.5 override at the polls on May 20. Now a group of citizens spreading the vote “No” message has started to fight back.

The Wellesley Taxpayers Association has launched a website and Facebook page to inform the public about why its members believe the town is headed for a serious debt problem if it keeps approving overrides and debt exclusions.

Meanwhile, the latest output from the vote “Yes” crew focuses on encouraging those who might be out of town on May 20 to submit an absentee ballot. As they say, every vote counts…

For you scoreboard watchers, as of Thursday afternoon, the Yes team has 344 Facebook likes, No team has 5. The Swellesley Report Facebook page has about 1,200. Go, Swellesley!
