A Passion For Progress

"Because You Matter" Kicks Off Tomorrow!

The "Because You Matter" tour is back for its fourth year! We're kicking off the 2017 school year at Lincoln-Bassett School tomorrow, Thursday, August 30th at 8:20 a.m., 130 Bassett St. in New Haven.

Every month for the rest of the school year, you can join me and other members of the community at a school in your neighborhood to welcome and encourage students as they walk through the doors in the morning.

Senator Winfield

It is critical for the community to show our support of our students. Encouragement and inspiration is a key component to keeping our kids focused on their education.

Our youth need our support now more than ever.

Check the "Because You Matter Tour" Facebook page every month to see which school we'll be visiting next!

See you tomorrow!
