Description
Town Charter
We, the people of the Town of Swampscott, not unmindful of the practical necessity of delegating to a duly constituted Legislature the power to act on behalf of all the inhabitants of the Commonwealth in matters which transcend the boundaries of a single town, but firmly believing that the best government is that which is most directly that of the people themselves, of which belief we recognize Article LXXXIX of the Amendments to the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to be an expression, do hereby adopt and establish this Charter of the Town of Swampscott.
