Get after school program back

To the Valley News:

No Funding, Really?

I am not one to make a fuss, write letters or pound my fists to be heard, but in this case, I have changed my tune. My life, as well as many other parents out there, will change drastically in a few months. But it is my children’s life that I am most concerned about due to “lack of funds” for the after school program at Westport School.

I want to know what politician/lawmaker decided that this program was worthy of the chopping block; obviously one who has never visited our town, our school or met our children – obviously one who has never balanced a career and a family trying to make ends meet. Our children’s future apparently has a price tag.

I will fight for this program until it gets re-instated.
