meetings (the next NRA meeting is on Sept. 18), reach out to the NRA. Ask questions of those who
support the proposal and those who oppose it. If the answers don’t sound right to you, ask more! Join the discussion at www.NewburyportForward.com. Learn where the mayoral candidates stand. Don’t let anyone tell you what to think about this issue; make up your own mind. In the end we may need to agree to disagree, and that’s OK — reasonable people may differ — so long as it is a disagreement based on facts. But whatever you do, don’t just assume that the best thing for Newburyport will happen without the involvement of its citizenry.
