To the editor,
Recently, school district residents had an extraordinary opportunity to choose two new School Board members from five candidates. Although I did not win, I was pleased to find myself in the company of Andrea Furey, Giuseppina Miller, Lisa McManus, and Lisa Cohen.
I want to thank everyone who supported me during this campaign - whether you actively campaigned for me, placed signs on your lawns, or voted for me. Everything you did helped me get as far as I did, and I could not have done it without you.
I also want to thank each member of the current School Board, Dr. Castro, Dr. Adelberg, Rochelle O’Mara, and Kathy Girardi, who provided me guidance and answered endless questions that I had during the last 2 months. I am also grateful to all the other members of this community, who provided me with critical information to further educate myself during my campaign.
And, I want to thank Jessica and Michael Anson, Suzanne and Robert Luntz, Carol and Jim Steinberg, and Holly and Mark Anzani, for hosting my three “meet and greet” events. It was because of their generosity that I was able to meet many more people in this District.
Finally, I wish all the best to Andrea and Giuseppina—your newest School Board trustees.
