At the end of the Town of Alden’s August 24 work session, town clerk Alecia Barrett informed the board that the Citizens for the Future of Alden NY, a non-governmental committee dedicated to educating the public about the benefits of a five-member town board, formally submitted a petition to put upsizing the town board on the November 2021 ballot.
According to Barrett, the committee submitted a petition with 556 signatures of town residents. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Erie County Board of Elections only required 180 verified signatures to get the referendum of the ballot.
