Emails from parents to lawmakers responsible for approving the Board of Education budget are FAR outweighed by emails from community members asking to cut the BOE budget even further. Parents, we need to make our voice heard to preserve the quality of our children’s education! Let them know that we will not allow our children’s futures to be compromised!
Emails should be sent before the various town bodies vote on the annual budget. Each of these groups has the ability to change the BOE budget, either positively or negatively.
Board of Selectmen: March 28

You are encouraged to consider using this sample letter as a start, but feel free to personalize as you see fit. Emails should be concise and to the point, yet personal enough so that lawmakers understand why this subject is important to you. Thank you!
