A discussion on the status of the Hull No Place for Hate Committee, including its mission and structure, was postponed by the Board of Selectmen this week pending receipt of further information.
“For a few years, we’ve been talking about whether we want to remain a town committee or be an independent committee, and after seeking input from other NPFH communities, we decided we prefer to remain a town committee,” member Rhoda Kanet said, adding, “The vote was unanimous.”
Kanet asked that the discussion be changed to another date because the meeting was running longer than expected and she thought more time was needed for the conversation. “We’d like to have a longer discussion about our mission and goals at a later time,” she said.
Town Manager Philip Lemnios suggested that those involved with the Hull NPFH Committee create a “policy paper about what the members think should be the makeup of the committee, a proposed mission statement and goals, and how a committee of this nature should operate” to present at a selectmen’s meeting sometime after town meeting, since the board’s agendas are full until then. In the meantime, the NPFH Committee is free to plan activities and programs.
Lemnios noted that some members have been involved with the committee for many years.
