Statement of Senator Julie Kushner, D-Danbury, on The Passage of the Danbury School Bonding Referendum


“Tonight, Danbury voted definitively – six to one – in favor of building a new public school.  This is a strong vote of confidence in our students, in our educators, in Danbury Public Schools and in the future of our City.  The Career Academy will put Danbury on the map as the first high school in the state to adopt a district-wide career pathways curriculum.  I’m honored to have played a part in securing an 80% state reimbursement rate for the new school. This investment in our students will reap benefits for our community for many years to come.”

The Danbury school bond referendum vote was passed today with 2,461 in favor and 433 opposed.
