Vote ‘No’, on the sole reason the bond is not what I and I hope others were expecting (a bond for a new high school, and a high school alone). more
By voting ‘Yes’ on Question 1 on Nov. 7, voters in Bristol and Warren will have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to bring BWRSD’s school buildings into the 21st century. more
Can we count on our local Bristol Warren School Board leadership, mostly all products of a mediocre Bristol educational system to keep our Town solvent? My advice as we vote on this question is, don’t bet your house on it. more

It would be disastrously short sighted for Bristol-Warren students to get left behind in outdated and inadequate facilities.I encourage every voter to do their research and make an informed decision to support this investment in our future. more
If you take a close look at a glass of seawater or even Westport River water, you will find it is full of tiny particles. Seawater isn't just plain water; it contains dissolved salts, proteins, fats, … more
I am asking all Bristol and Warren voters to vote YES for the school construction bond. Our futures depend on it. more
While the district leaders, architects, and engineers attempted to paint a rosy picture of the new high school and the building procedure, they completely failed to assuage the fears and concerns of myself and my neighbors who have been suffering from flooded yards and basements for decades. more
