Last Sunday Wellesley honored those who served and served to protect our country and our RIGHT to vote. Monday Wellesley celebrates Memorial Day honoring those who died to protect our country and our RIGHT to vote. THE TRUTH: a pathetic 38% of Wellesley voters exercised their RIGHT to vote which Wellesley just honored and is about to celebrate. SHAME ON YOU, WELLESLEY!
