[Discussion] The Collingswood BOE Adds A List of Links To Inform The Public About Bond Referendum Vote, But Is It Enough?

For months the information has been spread in different areas, which others and myself have been trying to bring together here, on this blog.

The Collingswood School District finally put together a comprehensive list of information related to the upcoming Bond Referendum Vote for the Outdoor Enrichment Project (aka The Stadium Project). Personally, I now have quite a collection of emails, text messages, packets, links to board meeting agendas, powerpoints, and video clips but still found new information on the pages. So you should check them out too.
