      Newtown, CT

On November 28, 2012 during night rush hour, Newtown lost an 18 year old due to a terrible car accident. Christopher Lee Mulligan, was born in Taegu, South Korea on February 5, 1994, he was the son of Brian and Laura DiDomenico Mulligan. He had attended Newtown High School. Christopher enjoyed skateboarding and could often be found at the Newtown Skateboard Park. He was an artist and creative writer. He held a Second Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and was looked up to by the youth he taught at the American Institute of Tae Kwon Do in Monroe. In addition to his parents, survivors include his family and many friends.

There will be a meeting on January 8th 2013, at 6:00 pm in which I (Michael Trevail) will address this to the Recreation Board. If you would like to join, please email me at: miketrevail@icloud.com. I spoke to the Recreation Director today and she didnt have a problem with it but just like anything, it has to be presented to the Board.

If it goes through, the Newtown Skate Park would be known as The C.L. Mulligan Skate Park

To:
Newtown Rec Commission, Town of Newtown
To rename the Newtown Skate Park in memory of Christopher Lee Mulligan

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      As of right now, I spoke with the Rec Director and she has asked that anyone that's planning on attending the meeting to please NOT attend. The meeting has jam packed. I am on the agenda to share this petition and share the reasoning but due to Sandy Hook and everything else thats going on, they have LOTS of things to address.

      Thanks to all of you for your support.
