While we are excited that Rep Esty and Sen Blumenthal are going back to DC to work for us and be our voices, we were disappointed in the other results. Especially Eva’s. Her hard work and dedication to the citizens of Newtown are unparalleled. Her focus on what works for Newtown and her ability to be our voice in Hartford is an opportunity missed. Eva never gives up, never stops fighting for the working families and we are sure that her voice in Newtown will not be silenced.
So, we are still here and going to continue to work for Newtown families, children, teachers and workers. Next year is the local election and with the voters ensuring that the Board of Education will have differing voices on it, voices that can’t be ignored, our work starts anew.
If you were as disappointed as we were, but not sure where to turn, come to one of our meetings, we are looking for new members and people willing to step up and work for a better, nicer Newtown.
