You can't compare Boston and Tewksbury. A council here would not even be like a council in Lowell, never mind Boston.

You totally missed the point of my comment (which had nothing to do with remarks that seemingly struck a nerve about how much a town council would cost the Town).

I made a comment about generating interest in town meeting from the point of view of someone who had no background in town meeting.

I'm not "comparing" them to make an argument. I'm expressing my experience coming from one style of government to a new town and new style of government (which I was unfamiliar with), that, once I understood how it worked, I liked the Town Meeting model, and that I think it would be a good idea to educate new residents who don't have experience with Town meeting (hopefully generating interest).

This is my experience. It's not gospel.
