Need People To Attend Candidates Night This Monday In Middletown

We were informed by email on Friday night that there will be a Middletown School Board candidates night held on this Monday night at 7pm at the Monhagen Middle School.

Here is the email:

The first candidate forum for the Middletown School Board Election is sponsored by the MTA
(teachers union)and will be held 5/3/10, Monday, at 7 PM at Monhagen Middle School off of County Rte. 78. Questions will be permitted from the audience.

I appreciate as many supporters as possible who can be there.

Thank you for your support, Lynne Perkins

Lynn Perkins is the ONLY seat up for re-election and she is being targeted FOR DEFEAT because SHE SUPPORTED THE PLA for the new $60 million dollar elementary school. We need her to stay on the board in order to even have a chance at having a PLA after the study comes back.

The Superintendent and four others on the baord are against PLAs and not supporters of local construction unions. They are working hard to unseat Perkins to kill the PLA issue.

There will still be a vote on this later and we need her there. We need to support those who support us.

Pass the word. Any Middletown School District members from IBEW Local 363 who can make it should come - others can come too just to show support. Retirees are always welcome too.

Here are the directions to the school
