Berlin voters reject charter changes

On Election Day, Nov. 8, Berlin voters rejected all the amendments put forth regarding Berlin’s Town Charter.

One modification in particular, dealing with the Visiting Nurses Association, drew a great deal of attention leading up to the vote.

With many residents fearing this charter revision would lead to the demise of the VNA, the proposal was defeated by a wide margin.

Another amendment to the charter would have allowed Board of Education candidates to run as members of a political party. Currently, the Berlin BOE is a non-partisan body, and residents voted to maintain that structure.

Voters also said no to a charter change which would have removed the requirement that the Town Manager reside in Berlin during their tenure.
