Republican Council Members Decide Issues in Private

The Republican members of the Town Council do not debate with each other in public.  They decideissues in private party caucuses.  Since they are a majority of the Town Council, this effectively settles issues outside of the public’s view.

Republicans often hold their caucuses on the Thursday night before Tuesday’s Town Council meetings. on  Occasionally, the caucus is held just before the Council meeting in the Mayor’s office..

Sometimes the Republicans need a caucus to settle an issue amongst themselves during the Town Council meeting and call for a recess to do so.

During the Town Council’s  May 5th meeting , the Republicans needed two caucuses.  One was held in the Council chamber, the other just outside a chamber doorway.

This 46-second clip shows part of both caucuses.
