Third Time’s the Charm?

Act 46

May 10, 2017 – Last night a very informative School Board meeting was held with the main topic being the upcoming merger vote for the passage of Act 46 in the Town of Stamford. Several members of the school board, not enough to make a quorum, where present to try and answer every question thrown their way. Also on hand was Rep. Laura Sibilia as well as a group of concerned citizens who came forward with a well-research, well delivered presentation on an alternative to Act 46.

Act 46 is fast moving, still evolving piece of legislation, asking voters to make a decision before the ink on the final draft is dry is a recipe for disaster in my opinion. I will continue to follow this important decision for the residents of Stamford as more information is available to be made public.
