Abstract "Recall," Vincent A McCrossen, The Lexington Minute Man, July 10, 1969

McCrossen notes a recent referendum which passed. McCrossen suggests that the School Committee, intent on upsetting the results of the referendum, scheduled a new Town Meeting. McCrossen describes the members of the School Committee and Town Meeting as "extremist ideologues grinding out their own socialistic and racist schemes at the expense of the town's children and its taxpayers." McCrossen reminds readers he had previous voted against the "extremist schemes" of the Town Meeting. He insists Lexington's only option is to obtain "a clear cut right of recall from the Legislature and then recalling the school Committee... and the Town Meeting members."
