This Week in Mercer: Jeff Hewitson and Tahirih Smith

This week on the show we had Jeff Hewitson, the president of the Hamilton Township Board of Education, about the district’s facilities problems.

The district closed a portion of one high school two weeks ago after testing found mold, bacteria and lead-based paint in the building. After years of neglect and one-time fixes, the district’s 23 schools need more than $100 million in renovations.

At the bottom of the hour, we had Tahirih Smith from Sustainable Lawrence, a community group advocating for a greener community in the township.

Her group is holding a Living Local Expo at Lawrence High School from noon to 4 p.m. The event will have speakers, cooking demonstrations and showings from vendors at the high school.
