“The information is out there ... but it’s tough to find,” Farrell said, even such as the when and where of Town Meeting. “You can see all the different silos, but you don’t know what’s inside of them.” He noted the town may hire a part-time staffer to update the town’s website.

Scoteri also criticized Hubbard for questioning the town manager structure but still voting for a new contract for Lombardo. Hubbard said that wasn’t true — he didn’t vote to extend Lombardo’s contract or give him a raise.

The candidates discussed several other issues, including the Community Preservation Act, local meals taxes, privatizing some services, alternative revenues, upgrading the downtown septic system and the tax burden, especially for senior citizens. They also participated in a candidate forum that night hosted by the League of Women Voters.

Town elections in both Hamilton and Wenham take place April 10. Hamilton’s annual Town Meeting is Saturday at 9 a.m. at Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School. Wenham’s annual Town Meeting is also Saturday, at 1 p.m. at Buker Elementary School.
