Mayor of Middletown Dan Drew delivered the 2016 Constitution Day Lecture on Sept. 16 titled “Are We Better Than Our Predecessors? Toward a New Era of Progress.” In this talk, Mayor Drew explored the erroneous assumptions that we are more advanced than preceding generations and what we can do to focus ourselves toward a future predicated on progressive social and economic advancement. The annual Constitution Day Lecture is sponsored by the Friends of Wesleyan Library.
Drew is serving his third term as Middletown’s Mayor.
