Newton is our Home.

This override gives us the chance to invest in it.

We in Newton want excellent schools, high quality roads and parks, and robust services. But increasing needs and the rising costs to maintain, sustain and expand the things that are important to us exceed the restrictions imposed by Proposition 2 1/2 even with full utilization of one time funding sources like ARPA.

Since 2002, once every 10 years Newton voters have chosen to use overrides to keep our community strong and vibrant. 

 

It has been 10 years. 

On March 14, let's recommit to our city's future by voting YES on all three override questions!

About

The Override Questions

On March 14, Newton voters will vote on three Override Questions.
