Respect for Learning, Respect for All

Vote YES on June 3rd

Are you aware that all 19 Town leaders (all Selectmen, all School Committee members, and all Finance Committee members), AND our State Representative support the need for an override to preserve Shrewsbury as we know it?

Our school district has already been affected by many personnel and program reductions since 2004:

SPS_reductionsIf the override does not pass then the district will need to eliminate additional classroom teachers.

This election will be close. Your vote will make a difference. During the 2007 operational override vote, 53% of registered voters came to the polls, and the override was rejected by 411 votes.

Absentee ballots for the June 3 Special Election are available at the Town Clerk’s window at Town Hall. The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot is noon on Monday, June 2, 2014. It takes minutes and ensures your vote! Click here to download the application for an absentee ballot. You can fill it out ahead of time and bring it to the Town Clerk’s office with you.

At their recent meeting, our Selectmen addressed the misleading signs placed by those opposed to the override.
“… the statement that has appeared on signs that the Question to be decided on June 3rd is “First in a Series of Permanent Overrides”. This statement is inaccurate and misleading. The Board has not discussed or considered making this override the first in a series of overrides or discussed or considered any other override.”
You can read the full statement on the Town website.
