The following is a statement from State Rep. Tom Conroy on the "Lavendergate" Facebook page:
Earlier today, State Senator Jamie Eldridge and I introduced as a bill in the Massachusetts legislature Sudbury's Special Act to increase the number of selectmen in town from 3 to 5. The bill has been assigned H4471. The House Clerk will likely assign the bill to the House Rules Committee for review and evaluation, and then to the House Steering and Policy Committee for assignment to a substantive committee, most likely the Joint Committee on Election Laws. I'll keep folks updated as the bill progresses. I'll also let you know when the House Clerk posts the status of the bill online and how to check it.
