The Speech & Debate Club at Al Hamra has 21 middle school student members.
Previously, they met with representatives from the community, including supporters of Shrewsbury and Shrewsbury for Responsible Taxation, to have a better understanding of the topic at hand.
The affirmative side fluently established its case for the betterment of the municipal and education department, while the negative vehemently opposed the override and asked the house to reconsider the town’s spending and fiscal responsibilities.
