Representatives from “Yes4Schools”, the citizen’s group backing the School Improvement Referendum, “CARE”, the citizen’s group opposing the School Improvement Referendum, and the YMCA, promoting the Aquatics Center portion of the referendum, have been invited to attend. Each will make a brief statement, and then answer audience questions regarding their position.
