Randolph Petitions

  • The list of petitions to the left are all related to Randolph Massachusetts, and are petitions in which Town Councilor Jesse Gordon participated.

  • Those colored gray aren't active in 2023 (but if you're interested, we could reactivate!). Those with yellow highlight are active -- click on the link for details.

  • Randolph is blessed with a Town Charter that allows the people to petition the government directly (rules below; not every town has such a petition method!). The people can file a petition with 150 signatures and get a hearing, or 250 signatures and require a vote. If the vote is negative, the people can further petition to put the issue onto the public ballot.

  • Councilor Gordon filed the first petition ever filed, in 2018, under the Town Charter. That petition was successful. The others are in various levels of completion toward success or failure -- you can help on any of them!

  • Please sign the petitions you believe in. And please come to public meetings in Randolph to tell your story -- the Randolph Town Council and School Committee very much value public input!

    Sincerely,
    Jesse Gordon

Section 7-6. Petitions To Council Or School Committee The town council or the school committee shall hold a public hearing and act with respect to every petition which is addressed to it, which is signed by 150 voters, or more, and which seeks the passage of a measure. The hearing shall be held by the town council or the school committee, or, in either case, by a committee or subcommittee thereof and the action by the town council or the school committee shall be taken not later than 3 months after the petition is filed with the clerk of the council or the administrative assistant to the superintendent, as may be appropriate. Hearings on 2 or more petitions filed under this section may be held at the same time and place.
