Why I Support Updating the Town Seal • For me, the issue with the Groton Town Seal is limited to a First Amendment violation. Consider the Endorsement Test, as follows: "Courts use the endorsement test to determine whether the government impermissibly endorses or disapproves of religion in...
Thomas Jefferson, who was the primary author of both the Declaration of Independence and the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, advised Americans that there should be a “wall of separation” between church and state.  The application of this principle may be difficult in some instances, but it...
My name is Yasmeen Cheema, and I am asking for your vote for the School Committee. I believe that education is the foundation of society. Children require a safe learning environment that fosters imagination, open discussion, and curriculum alignment with state standards. However, the education...

For this reason, I have chosen to step down from the Groton-Dunstable School Committee and not run for re-election. I will take this year to enjoy this time with my son.  As I...
At the May 24th Election, voters will be asked to take the final step in the process to change the position of Town Clerk from elected to appointed. This change was endorsed at last fall’s Town Meeting and has been approved by the Massachusetts Legislature.     The Select Board unanimously...
