Coventry charter dispute to go before Supreme Court
By News Staff
An election dispute in
After a nearly two-hour meeting Tuesday night, the Coventry Board of Canvassers voted 3-to-0, to let the supreme court decide the case.
The controversy began in February when a town council member moved out of his district and had to resign.
A special election should have been called, but was not because some unknown person falsified the town charter as it pertains to a special election.
Because of this, the towns district five seat remains empty and people in that district complain they have no voice on the town council.
