In less than a week, Newtown voters have the chance to approve or reject a $50 million state bond to build a new Sandy Hook Elementary School, and the Oct. 5 referendum is the top subject of discussion in town this week.
Stop in any number of local businesses, and you may see these flyers -- provided by the Sandy Hook PTA. (Patch spotted the flyers above in Sandy Hook's Village Perk cafe.) The PTA and other local advocacy groups, as well as town officials like First Selectman Pat Llodra and Interim Superintendent John Reed, are working hard to convince Newtowners a new school is right for the town.
Reed and Llodra will host one more joint q&a session on the matter, scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Thursday at the Newtown Municipal Center.
