Why we need a new Wellington Elementary: the video

There are lots and lots of great reasons to rebuild Wellington Elementary: it replaces a failing and costly building, does right by our children, helps maintain Belmont’s image as a town that supports its public schools and frees up classroom capacity for future growth. But don’t let me tell you — check out the great new video produced by Together for Wellington, the grassroots group that’s trying to raise awareness about the project.

The video, Why We Need a New Wellington, was released on March 4 and does a great job explaining the details of the project, anticipating questions/criticisim and generally making the case for passing a debt exclusion to build the new school.If you have trouble viewing it above, the video can be viewed by visiting the Together For Wellington Web site (and make a donation while you’re there). You can also view it on YouTube.
