Update – the referendum results are: Yes (reject the contract) 161, and No (accept the contract) 643.
Editor’s note: This post was corrected to replace the word “budget” where it appeared in the story instead of “contract,” in two instances. I do apologize for the error. – Brenda Sullivan
A reminder that Willington electors will be voting on the teacher contract on Friday, Nov. 12. Polls will be open at 40 Old Farms Road from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The deadline for requesting an absentee ballot was Nov. 10.
The ballot asks electors to vote “yes” or “no” on a question that asks if they want to reject the contract.
That means a “yes” vote means you are opposed to the contract and want it rejected.
A “no” vote indicates you support the contract and want it to pass.
The ballot will read:
“Should the legislative body of the Town of Willington reject the negotiated contract between the Willington Board of Education and the Willington Education Association, which covers the period from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2014?”
For more information, call the Town Clerk’s office at 860 487-3121 during office hours. Remember, Thursday, Nov. 11 is Veteran’s Day and offices will be closed. The Town Clerk’s usual office hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday.
