Where are you getting all of your facts Bruce? We will be voting to give the town the authority to CONSIDER proposals that have a residential element for redeveloipment on a maximum of two expensive-to-maintain, decrepid, unsafe buildings. The town doesn't have this approval yet, so there are no specific proposals on which to base your assumptions. There are no specific details with regard to how much the town stands to gain or lose. So again I ask, where are all of these fear mongering facts coming from that you keep citing over and over? We don't know how many apartments vs. commercial units there could be because nothing specific is being considered because the vote hasn't happened yet! We don't know how many people with children could live there for the same reasons. We don't know how much new business and new tax revenue a mixed use development could bring to Newtown yet because nothing is on the table, and nothing has been put thru the standard review process, or public input process yet, becuase we haven't voted yet! The only fact that is 100% known right now, is that the town has some huge eyesores that are falling down, and that we all need to pony up to have stabilized, becuase under the current mandate, there is no interest from developers, none of the historic preservation funds that are available to developers are available to to the town, and as a result, WE have to pay millions of dollars for new roofs, windows and/or demolition (money that our schools can put to better use for certain). A "YES" vote on November 3rd will allow the town to consider other options. That's it. So please tell us how you have all of these facts and figures for projects that don't exist, or please stop the incessint fear mongering.
This letter is offensive and inaccurate.
1.Rebekah Harriman-Stites has stated clearly that she does not support removing school resource officers from our schools and that she supports police reform (not defunding) which is desperately needed everywhere.
2. Rebekah Harriman-Stites would be correct in stating that there is a problem with systemic racism in Newtown Schools and that we need to do better.
3. I will be voting for Rebekah Harriman-Stites.
