Norfolk activist: I'll make my own sign!

NORFOLK

Norfolk has placed three signs near the center of town announcing next Tuesday's Special Town Meeting, Town Administrator Jack Hathaway said.

John Bermingham, the founder of Norfolk Organization for Government Oversight, or NOGO, had complained because the signs were not up two weeks before the meeting. Hathaway had agreed to place the signs by that date to raise awareness about the meeting, Bermingham said.

Bermingham said that town officials repeatedly offered “reasons to fail,” and Hathaway responded by asking Bermingham what he does to help.

Bermingham said that he would purchase a sign with about $75 of his own money. The Special Town Meeting will start at 7:30 p.m. next Tuesday at King Philip Middle School.
