EASTON EYE Phase 4
As our first effort in Phase 4, the EYE asks all citizens to stand against the character assassination of Derek Buckley by the Easton Republicans. The latest attack on Mr. Buckley came in a letter from former ERTC Chair, Hugh Barry. Whether you supported Mr. Buckley or not in the election, please check out the links below and stand with us in opposition to the continuing attacks on his reputation. s our first effort in Phase 4, the EYE asks all citizens to stand against the character assassination of Derek Buckley by the Easton Republicans.

In Phase 2 the EYE initiated the Write-In for Reform campaign. While the write-in candidates did not prevail in the election,
they clearly had at least as much support in town as their opponents. We consider the campaign a success, are proud of and thankful every citizen who joined in the effort.

STAND AGAINST THE VICIOUS REPUBLICAN ATTACKS ON DEREK BUCKLEY
The Quest for Open Government and Public Access to Information
August 2012-August 2013
In this first year the EYE attempted to get our leaders to be more open and transparent in their actions, improve the Town website, and make public documents available at little or no cost to private citizens. It neccesitated a number of FOIA complaints to procure public documents and to assure that public meetings stay public. It was characterized by the Battle for the Legal Bills which, though the EYE has most of those requested, are still not readily available to citizens, or even to the BOF. This quest is not over and
Phase 1 provides some examples of what a high information Town Website might include.
Over the next few weeks, the EYE will publish a detailed analysis of the Election Moderator's Return.
That is the official document that is used to determing the results of an election.
“Elections determine who is in power, but they do not determine how power is used.”
