Statement of the Wilton Republic Town Committee
(January 25, 2019)
We strongly oppose the Bill proposed by the Democrats’ Senate Leader that would consolidate the Wilton School District with the Norwalk School District.
The proposal (Senate Bill 454) of State Senate President Pro Tempore Martin Looney (D-New Haven) would seriously jeopardize Wilton’s reputation for high quality, locally controlled education. Other serious consequences for Wilton, known and unknown, would no doubt follow.
The RTC is inviting the public to an information session on the Looney Bill on Thursday, January 31, at 7:00 PM.
*Due to anticipated turnout, the informational meeting this Thursday, January 31st pertaining to the school consolidation bill has been moved to Trackside TeenCenter. Starts at 7:00.
All are welcome and families with students in Wilton schools are strongly encouraged to attend. The purpose of the meeting is to facilitate responses to the Bill by all Wilton residents and give each the opportunity to be heard in Hartford as the Bill is debated.
