City Council deems arts in Middletown UNIMPORTANT
This petition made change with 58 supporters!
In a 10-2 vote Monday night, Middletown Common Council members cut the city's Arts & Culture Office coordinator position with no alternative plan presented when a majority agreed to remove it from the budget along with other measures.
The job was vacated recently after Stephan Allison retired.
Let the Council know our city needs a paid, full-time promoter of the arts, someone who will continue to spearhead programs and events that make Middletown a proud, vibrant arts community and create an action plan that supports the arts.
You can help us reach our goal of gathering 10 percent of the some 26,600 registered voters by signing this petition. You are needed to ensure the arts can continue to thrive and enrich our city. The arts are important.
By charter, we are required to get more than 2,656 signatures by May 28 to force a referendum that will allow voters' voices be heard.
Please share this link as widely as you can. We don't have much time.
