We would just like to shout out our thanks to the amazing Rebekah and Alex for the campaign they ran this summer and fall. They brought new ideas to the front and really brought people together. Alex, despite never working on a campaign before, stepped up and amazed us with his dedication to this race and the endless energy and work he put into it.
Rebekah showed us that you can run a campaign in a positive light. She laid our her thoughts, ideas, knowledge and passion for our hometown. Rebekah brought out the best in us and brought us together. Dozens upon dozens of volunteers, from high school students to senior citizens, Rebekah gave us the gift of new friendships that will last longer than the election results and continue moving Newtown forward. Thank you for stepping up, putting yourself out there and helping make in nicer in Newtown.
