Do you know what ward you live in? You should. And if you can’t locate it on the map above, try looking it up on this page. Why? Because on Monday May 4th we are having an election–and your vote counts. Here is a note from the major in the town newsletter: Cheverly Council members serve two year terms and earn $2,400 / per year. Cheverly is a weak mayor system of government, which means that the Town Government’s Chief Operating Officer is the Town Administrator. The Town Council’s role is to set policy, set priorities, establish a budget and oversee the operations of the town staff. Cheverly is a small town, and elections tend to be pretty civil affairs. However, vibrant elections are the foundation of good local government so if you are interested please join in.
I agree, Mayor Mike! So who is going to run to continue to make our town great?! Information is below…
