Town Moderator

The Moderator is elected by ballot at an Annual Town Election for a two year term, and is responsible for presiding over the Town Meetings, regulating proceedings, deciding all questions of order, and making public declaration of all votes.

The powers and duties of the presiding officer, not especially provided for by law, or by Town bylaws, shall be determined by the rules and practices contained in the most recent edition of Robert's Rules of Order, revised, so far as such rules are applicable to a Town Meeting.

The Town Moderator also appoints the members of the Finance & Advisory Board Committee and the Stoneham Tri-Community Bike & Greenway Committee.
