  • Arlington Town Clerk: Appointed or Elected?

    The League of Women Voters of Arlington supports converting the Town Clerk from an elected to an appointed position, where the Town Manager hires the Town Clerk with the approval of the Select Board. Last year, Town Meeting voted 186 to 31 to put this question on the 2024 ballot. Now the decision is in the hands of Arlington’s voters.

    At the request of the current Town Clerk, a study was commissioned to assess the organizational structure of the Town Clerk Department in order to inform the elected vs. appointed decision. We encourage you to read the study and support this change to strengthen the structure of Arlington’s government.
