• Help Maintain And Grow Our Educational System

    To the Editor:

    Newtown, please vote Yes for the education budget on Tuesday April 22nd!  Why? Because the proposed budget takes into account declining enrollment, current and future planning, and doesn’t play a “cat and mouse” game with the bottom-line.

  • Responsible and Objective Budgets

    To the Editor:

    This year’s budgets carefully address numerous concerns expressed by many. In general, schools, roads, and taxes are the most frequently heard topics.

    The Board of Education, Board of Selectmen, Board of Finance and the Superintendent all earned a well deserved “thank you” for assembling very responsible and objective budgets that can serve as models for coming years. On Tuesday April 22 please vote (at the Middle School, Queen Street) to support these budgets.

  • Let’s Make It ‘One And Done’

    To the Editor:

    I am writing in support of the municipal and education budgets and want to encourage all Newtown voters to vote in the budget referendum on Tuesday, April 22.

  • Heartened By This Year’s Budget And Budget Process

    To the Editor:

    As I reflect upon my first time through the budget process as a member of the Legislative Council, I cannot help but be impressed by the level of cooperation displayed by the boards of selectmen, education, and finance as well as my fellow council members in achieving what I believe to be very prudent budgets on both the municipal and education sides of the ledger sheet, which I wholeheartedly endorse.

    To the Editor,

  • A United Council In Support Of The Budget

    To the Editor:

    On April 2nd, the Legislative Council unanimously approved the budget put forth for our consideration by the Board of Finance. This budget represents a zero tax increase while taking into account the need for a solid school security plan, proper coverage of our health insurance funds, money to repair our roads as well as a reduction in staffing in our schools in response to declining enrollment.

    Please join us on Tuesday, April 22nd, and vote yes at the Middle School on Queen Street from 6 am – 8pm.

  • School Officials And Board Support The Budget

    To the Editor:

    The Board of Education, along with Interim Superintendent Dr John Reed and incoming Superintendent Dr Joseph Erardi, respectfully requests that you join with us in supporting the 2014-2015 budget by voting YES on Tuesday, April 22nd, at Newtown Middle School between the hours of 6 am and 8 pm.

  • A Council Member’s Clarification

    To the Editor:
