Our own NKTA president, James Baker, was elected for the Newton School
NKTA supported Tammy Mahoney who was elected to the at-large School Board
NKTA supported Mary Cyr was elected to a seat on the Budget Committee and NKTA supported Jim Doggett was re-elected, unopposed, to his seat on the Budget Committee.
With the strength of NKTA supported candidates, the chairmanship of the School board changed hands 2017. We also now have a new school administration that is more open and willing to listen to voters.
5 education videos on the town budget processes (see below) were created and run on the Newton Town Cable station. (note: Kingston cable station is not yet operational so we have not yet been able to run in Kingston)

Our dues are how we fund the voter education mailings that we distribute to all voters in Newton and Kingston.
This consumes 100% of our annual dues revenues. Fortunately, through many additional donations, we were able to fund 2 mailings in 2017.
We plan to do the same in 2018, but we cannot do so without additional member support.
