Congratulations Barbara, Bill and Sheila! And also Larry Swartz! For a second year in a row, the voters of Hamilton and Wenham have wisely cast their votes for excellent school committee representatives and extended a community mandate for change, transparency, and fiscal responsibility that residents have long demanded. Well done. A hearty congratulations to the newly elected members.
