New Elementary School Project in Amherst Discussion

On April 13 at 4pm, Sue Lowery, on behalf of Amherst Neighbors and the League of Women Voters Amherst is pleased to host Adrienne Terrizzi and Cathy Schoen for a special discussion of the issues surrounding the new elementary school project in Amherst and its impact on our community.
Adrienne led the Amherst League of Women Voters working group in comparing our local policy positions on Education and Schools and Energy, comparing those with the new school building project and the ways it will impact our residents. Cathy, as a Town Council member, has led the Elementary School Committee on behalf of the Council.
Together they bring decades of experience in education, public policy and advocacy for communities across the continuum of socioeconomic spectrum.
LWVA recently voted to support both a yes vote and attempts on the part of the Town Council to mitigate the effect on taxpayers by utilizing funds from the Town's Cash Reserves. Adrienne and the working group ensured that the Elementary School proposal is in accord with our League policies and positions.
As always, our events are free and open to the public, so tell your friends!
