Letters to the Editor

  • Special Needs Kids Are Pretty Special To Many People

    To the Editor: I want to thak Linda Jones for all that she does to make the FUN support groups happen. We took our son Daniel to a Halloween Party at the High School on November 2, 2013 and the Best Buddies club were there to play with and encourage the special needs children. I joined one of the children to judge the Halloween costumes, and it was a very special evening.

  • Moving Forward Together

    To the Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in my campaign for town clerk. Thank you to all the DTC members and, in particular, Maureen Crick Owen, Sharon Kish, and Eva Bermudez for the endless hours of hard work in making this experience a very special one for me.

  • Working Hard For Newtown

    To the Editor: I would like to say thank you to the voters who came out to the polls this week. I am again honored to represent District 2 on the Legislative Council.

  • Generosity Grows In The Victory Garden

    To the Editor: I’m writing on behalf of the management and residents of Nunnawauk Meadows to express our special thanks to Harvey Pessin, Victory Garden Director, and all of the hard-working volunteers who helped plant, harvest and deliver the delicious vegetables from the Victory Garden during these past few months.

  • Read-A-Treat

    To the Editor: Many of you enjoyed Read-A-Treat on Halloween in front the library. The event was a success and many thanks go out to all those who helped make it happen. We thought it would be appropriate to let the community know how it came about. The books were collected after a Facebook page –Books for Sandy Hook – was created back in December by one of your neighbors from Monroe, who is also a teacher.

  • A Short Note Of Thanks

    To the Editor: Just a short note of thanks to all off the voters who came out to vote in this week's election and especially for the voters of District 1 who elected me to serve as their representative for a third term on the Legislative Council.

  • Does Solar Make Sense For You?

    To the Editor: There has never been a better time to invest in solar. Solarize Newtown is a state and town-sponsored program that makes solar more affordable for Newtown homeowners by aggregating installations in our community with a pre-selected installer, who is discounting solar in exchange for our community’s outreach and education efforts.

  • Letters of Endorsement

    Letters endorsing candidates in the 2013 Newtown local elections.

  • Why Should You Vote For Me?

    To the Editor: On November 5th, the residents of Newtown will be casting their ballot for the municipal election. As a candidate for town clerk, I have the experience and certification needed to perform the duties and responsibilities of this very important position.

  • Protecting Local Educational Data

    To the Editor: I want to thank The Newtown Bee for hosting the BOE candidates’ forum providing townspeople with the opportunity to hear their thoughts and positions on education matters. I was, however, disappointed that – in your newspaper’s write-up of the event – you neglected to provide the candidate’s responses to the last question of the evening having to do with data storage and the dissemination of confidential student test results. As I remember, each candidate considered the question thoughtfully and, I believe, came down on the side of protecting a student’s privacy.
