Today, the mayor’s office announced a series of upcoming Town Hall meetings to discuss the proposed override plan that will be on the ballot in March ….
Mayor Setti Warren will hold Town Hall meetings throughout the city to speak with residents about his proposed override package. Newton voters will have the opportunity to vote on the override proposal, which includes three interconnected ballot questions, on March 12.
“We need this override if we want to modernize our dilapidated and outdated facilities, create space and hire teachers for the huge influx of students in our schools, repair crumbling roads and sidewalks, and improve public safety,” said Mayor Warren. “The Town Halls are a place where city leaders and residents can have an open dialogue about the override package and why it’s so critical to Newton’s future.”
