While the Newtown Health District is not planning to host any COVID-19 vaccination clinics for the youngest candidates who just became qualified to receive a protective jab, Director Donna Culbert is promoting clinics including one June 30 at Newtown High School.
Families United in Newtown (FUN) is teaming up with Newtown Parks & Recreation and the Newtown Lions Club to host its end of the school year meeting and “Senior Send-Off” for Newtown High School National Honor Society volunteers.
I think its clear that Rebekah has her eyes on other elected positions. Perhaps this is for the best. I'm sure a newly appointed Board Member, who is willing to "show up, learn, and listen" to their colleagues - on both sides of the aisle - may be a welcome change.
When Dan Rosenthal discovered that the same law firm retained by the BOE was representing a company suing our town, he called for the BOE to sever ties with that law firm. Rebekah did not support that position. At the beginning of COVID the Governor and our First Selectman stated there wouldn't be any large gatherings. In spite of that Rebekah helped organize a protest in front of Edmund Town Hall. When she lost the election for state legislator, her acknowledgment speech was divisive (not unifying), as is her BOE resignation statement now. She makes disparaging remarks about the BOE without citing examples to support them. Rebekah quits the BOE before the end of her term. This is irresponsible, unprofessional, and disrespectful of the board members left behind. If she truly cared about serving our students, she would have stayed and continued to voice her opinions on their behalf. Rebekah consistently demonstrates that she does what she wants regardless of anything or anyone else. She is not a team player.
