Important hearing tomorrow

For those of you following the school board charter situation there is an important meeting tomorrow morning in the LOB Room 103.
The state Senate Judiciary Committee will be hearing testimony about the home rule charter petition bill, HB 319. The House has already approved the measure.
If approved by the Senate and signed by the governor, and then approved by the voters in November, Concord residents will be able to change its own school charter without having to go through the Legislature first. Concord is the only city in the state that has to petition the Legislature to change the school charter.
Even if you can't make it to the hearing, this is a very important bill. Please contact your state Senator [in Concord, that's Sylvia Larsen:], and ask them to support this bill.
