The giant city of Los Angeles and the tiny Massachusetts town of Leverett don’t have much in common. But both municipalities have called on Congress to launch an impeachment investigation of President Trump.
And now, Weston is debating whether to do so as well.
On Thursday at 7 p.m., the League of Women Voters of Weston will co-host “The Constitution and Donald Trump: A Forum for Concerned Citizens” in the Community Room of the Weston Town Library. Attorney Marguerite M. Dorn will speak on the importance of giving local citizens a voice on the national scene.
At a Special Town Meeting on Nov. 28, Weston residents will consider a citizens petition asking the US House of Representatives to investigate whether the president is violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.
Starting this week you can explore Lexington by bicycle — even if your own bike has a flat.
