  • Extended Hours At Registrar's Office Today

    The Newtown Registrar of Voters office will have special hours today for those who still need to register to vote in tomorrow’s referendum.

    Residents who do not own property assessed at more than $1,000 as posted on the October 2012 Grand List can still vote on Tuesday, April 23, by registering to vote today.

  • The Budget Vote

    Newtown has been the object of countless acts of generosity since 12/14. Whether through sympathy or a sense of kinship — that we’re all in this difficult and dangerous world together — perfect strangers have declared themselves citizens of the emotional territory of Newtown and have done their part to support through donations, both cash and in-kind, Newtown’s future recovery. Next Tuesday, Newtown’s actual citizens will have to declare themselves on the matter of the town’s future by voting on a budget.

  • First-Ever Split Budget Vote Featuring Ballot Questions Set For Tuesday, April 23

    All qualified residents and property owners are being called to cast ballots on the proposed townwide budget request Tuesday, April 23. Polling will be at a single location — the gym at Newtown Middle School, 11 Queen Street — from 6 am to 8 pm.

    Those who cannot cast a vote in person may do so during special absentee balloting hours Saturday, April 20, from 9 am to noon, in the town clerk’s office at the Newtown Municipal Center, or pick up and file a ballot Monday, April 22, between 8 am and 4:30 pm.

  • Show Support For Our Schools

    To the Editor:

    With the budget referendum vote taking place next Tuesday, April 23rd, now is the time to show our support for our schools and teachers.  We currently have openings for principals at Newtown Middle School, Reed Intermediate School, and, tragically, Sandy Hook Elementary School.  If we want to attract outstanding candidates for these leadership positions, we need to let them know that our town is committed to excellence in education.
