Newtown leader looking forward

"Moving forward" has been the goal of many in Newtown since last December. 

 

First Selectman Pat Llodra says they are looking forward to a time when Sandy Hook Elementary students can come back home.  She says creating the new school will be celebratory and a time for Newtown to show the world that the community is looking forward to a positive future.  Llodra has said on multiple occasions that what happened a year ago was a defining moment for Newtown, but it does not define Newtown.

 

Llodra says they have been working with the Department of Justice on what the long term response of a community is to a mass tragedy and what is the role of the federal government to fund that.  She says those funds are mostly associated with providing mental health services to the community.
