Last Spring the Town of Amherst IT Staff and the Town Meeting Coordinating Committee revised a popular new portal that the public can now use to contact Town Meeting Members via email. This new email portal will enable the public to communicate easily with Town Meeting Members about issues that will come before Town Meeting.
Current Town Meeting members must opt in to receive emails from the public by sending an email to TownMeeting@amherstma.gov. The Town Meeting Coordinating Committee urges all Town Meeting members with email addresses to join. TM members' email addresses will not be revealed unless they choose to respond the the individual sending an email to the precinct list.
Correspondence shared using this distribution list is considered a public record and subject to the public record law.
Members of the Amherst public who wish to contact Town Meeting representatives may click the links below for their precincts. Messages will be forwarded directly to the appropriate Town Meeting Member precinct group. Messages will go to all members in a precinct who have opted in, rather than to individual members only.
Please include your name, address, and voting precinct in all communications. Click here for a searchable map of precincts. Articles to be voted at Town Meeting will be available on the Town Meeting webpage once the Warrant is signed.. Click here to see the list of Town Meeting members who will receive emails from the public.

If there is any Town Meeting member who would like to be added to their precinct list, please email TownMeeting@amherstma.gov with your request. Please provide your name, address, precinct and preferred email address.
The public can view the Town Meeting Discussion Group on Google. Membership in this group is only open to current Town Meeting members. If a member of the public wishes to offer a comment they can do so by contacting any TM member who has joined this group.
