Message from the Moderator

To this day, Hingham continues its long tradition of having the people serve as the town’s legislature; of having the people take responsibility for deciding issues of critical importance to the community.  We do this through Open Town Meeting, where each registered voter who takes part in the meeting does so with “voice and vote”.

On Monday, April 24, 2023 at 7PM, we will have our Annual Town Meeting. The meeting will be held at Hingham High School; please plan to arrive by 6:30, so we can start promptly at 7.

Meeting details can be found in the warrant, which has been mailed to each household, and on the town website.  

Self-governance is both a profound privilege and a civic responsibility.  Please be present on Monday, April 24 and take part in the entirety of the proceedings.  

Michael J. Puzo, Hingham Town Moderator

Town Meeting is open to all registered voters in town. 

If needed, a second night of Town Meeting will be held on the evening of Tuesday, April 25.  Registration, meeting start time, and all logistics will be the same for a second night of Town Meeting.

The Annual Town Meeting Warrant has 35 articles. For additional details on the Warrant Articles and the Advisory Committee’s recommendations, residents are asked to review the Warrant Book. A hard copy of the Warrant Book was also recently mailed to every Hingham household.
