RICHMOND â In a charged atmosphere at Tuesdayâs town council meeting, Councilor Erick Davis demanded to know why Councilor Paul Michaud reversed his position on the Chariho School budget soon after the council had voted unanimously on a resolution to support it and did not tell the council of his change of heart.
Michaud voted for the councilâs resolution on March 18 and later met with the Republic Town Committee where he said he received negative information about the budget and, as chairman of the committee, wrote a letter entitled âStop the Budget Gamesâ to urge Richmond Republican voters to reject the budget. At the April 8 referendum, Richmond voted no 315 to 294, but Charlestown and Hopkintonâs votes were enough to pass the budget.
