    Vote for school program

    Voters in Williamstown will get another opportunity to fulfill some of their community obligations by participating on May 6 in a re-vote of the proposed funding for our schools’ after school program known as ONWARD! This program has provided the children and young adults in our local school district opportunities that range from art classes to tutoring to “Games at the Gardens” where students head downtown for fun time with our town’s elders.

    There is a price for this vote: $40,000. This is not about an expansion of spending, but is instead a reflection of the simple reality the original grant is dropping and local money is needed to make up the difference.

    I will be voting in favor of the ONWARD! funding. This program has proven itself as a valuable tool for academic improvement and as a way of growth for our youth in the realm of social responsibility. I hope you will join me.
