Results of Nov. 7 election will affect schoolchildren
We at Middlesex United Way try to ensure that we find where people are struggling the most and do our best to be part of the solution. Something as simple as a single vote can be your own way of advocating for what you believe in. On Nov. 7, Middletown residents will choose between municipal candidates running for office. While this is not to elect a new president or governor, it could have a major impact on our children.
Education is one of the main pillars of a successful community, because research shows that as the quality of education increases, so does the probability of a student's success. With a good education, these children are far less likely to face challenges in other areas, such as housing and income.
We at Middlesex United Way focus on improving the health, housing, income and education of our community, and, while United Way is a nonpartisan organization, we do want to encourage you to get out and vote. Among other topics, the ballot will include a referendum this year requesting approval for $87.35 million for a new grade six to eight middle school to replace Keigwin and Woodrow Wilson middle schools.
Get out and vote Nov. 7, and make sure your voice is heard. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. at voting locations in Middletown.
