LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – Longmeadow residents went to the polls on Tuesday to vote on a number of issues including the proposed gas metering station on Shaker Road.
More than 2,000 people voted on Question 2, which is a nonbinary question that asks residents if they would be in favor of purchasing land rights over parcels of land to be used by Tennessee Gas Pipeline.
Over 1,000 people voted in favor of purchasing the land for up to $2.7 million. Other items on the ballot include select board, school committee, planning board, and housing authority.
Although this was a special town election there was a significant voter turnout at the Longmeadow community house.
One resident said it’s important to vote regardless of when an election is held.
“This is my town, I want to vote the right people in,” said Longmeadow resident, David Christopherson. “There’s a lot of controversy going on so we need the right people doing the right stuff for us.”
